The head of the local land trust, arguing for preserving a 62-acre farm at a board of directors’ meeting Wednesday, cited a report saying development in Manchester outpaced any other community in the state from 1985 to 2006.

The total amount of land developed in that period was 1,748.57 acres, well above neighboring South Windsor’s 1,623.9 acres, according to the Center for Land Use Education and Research at the University of Connecticut.
