LETTER TO THE EDITOR
To the editor: I am a homeowner in Cazenovia village. I just took the Village Preference Survey for the Village Edge South development, and I have to say that I was disappointed. So many of the choices in the survey seemed to require a choice between one form of sprawly suburban development for another.

Very few of the choices seemed to indicate what I think would be best, which would be development that is in keeping with the visual features that make the village attractive and cohesive.
