Rowley went on to say that the Friendly's seemed very willing to sell its building and they might sell to another restaurant. He said something a lot worse than a drug store could move in there and the residents would not be able to stop it. However, he stressed that this was merely speculation on his part.

A zoning change on the corner of Waterhouse and Morgan roads also caused residents to come out to oppose the plan. The proposal was to change the zoning from RA-100 Agricultural/Residential to NC-1 Neighborhood Commercial District. Residents of this area of Liverpool said they did not need any sort of convenience or retail store there.
"I moved to the area because it is a quiet residential area," said Jennifer Husenitza of 8155 Bordeaux Avenue. "We can get to Wegmans or any other store in a matter of minutes, so this sort of convenience store is really unnecessary."
Several residents of the area opposed the plan, which is resurfacing after the proposal was denied in 2006. In 2006, the town board wanted more information about traffic conditions on Morgan Rd. before it could hear this proposal. Residents still believe that there is no need for a convenience store, however, because they are so close to Route 31.
The proposal for a drive-in drug store at 5219 and 5225 West Taft Road was met with skepticism from the board. They were not convinced of the drive-through plan.
The stop signs on Snowdrop Road were also discussed, but were not voted on. The next town board meeting is on Mar. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in Clay town hall.
