Members of Save the River, Save the Hills, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the river and its environs, turned out in force for the meeting. So did a number of residents who wanted to find out whether this proposed new construction would hinder the possibility of obtaining sewers for existing housing in neighboring areas.
