Because- several residents asked the Board for more time to study the reports discussed at the hearing, the hearing has been continued until 8 p.m. Oc tober 23. The reports are available for Btudy at the Village Clerk's office. According to Richard Schechter, McDonald's at torney, the Village can only deny McDonald's request for a special permit if it is proven the restaurant would have a more detrimental effect on traffic than woo Id another commercial usage. 'The proposed use is a good one. It will not have an ap preciable traffic impact,'' commented James Napoleon, Syracuse city traffic engineer who conducted si' traffic study in Manlius for McDonald 's. Mr. Napoleon cited what he called the 'excellentdesign\ of the proposed McDonald 's driveway. He also noted the low accident rate in this area after reviewing accident statis tics for. nearby intersections. However, the statistics used by McDonald's were termed \outdated and irrelevant\ by William Morris, North St., who questioned the accident figures, pointing out that most of them were from 1971-2. Mr. Morris noted that since than the number of homes and commercial basin esses have increased and said it was an \extreme hazard\ getting out of Manlius Mart at the present time.
