The Town of Salina

It was not until the late 1840’s that Salina was reduced to its present size. The original Village of Salina stretched around Onondaga Lake, incorporating part of what is now the Town of Geddes and much of what today is the City of Syracuse. The early history of Salina is actually the history of the area around Onondaga Lake and the salt industry.

By 1846, it was apparent that Syracuse would soon become a city. The townspeople of Salina and Syracuse began discussing a proposed charter, which would unify the two villages. In December 1847, the act of incorporation was passed, which defined the area as “constituting a part of the Town of Salina and incorporation the Village of Salina and Syracuse.” This act reduced the Town of Salina to its present boundaries.

Today, Salina consists of five small suburban communities which are known as Mattydale, Liverpool, Lyncourt, Galeville and a portion of North Syracuse.   (315) 457-6661

Town of Clay

The Town of Clay was established in 1827 and is the northernmost town of the nineteen towns in Onondaga County. The largest town in Onondaga County, Clay is 54.6 square miles in size and includes part of the Village of North Syracuse. The Seneca River forms its western boundary, meeting with the Oswego and Oneida rivers at a point known as Three Rivers. The Oneida River forms most of the northern boundary. In 2008 the Town of Clay was rated 59th of America’s best places to live by Money Magazine.

A suburb of Syracuse, Clay is close to Syracuse Hancock International Airport and US Routes 81 and 90. Town Hall is located at 4401 State Route 31, between Henry Clay Boulevard and Morgan Road.

The 2000 Census estimated a population of 58,805 and the current estimate is approximately 60,000. Clay’s modern development as a residential community began in 1955 with the development of the Bayberry tract on Route 57. The opening of the Great Northern Mall on Route 31 in 1988 has brought increased commercial development along the east/west corridor.

Clay is governed by a Town Board, comprised of the Supervisor and six councilors electedat-large. Town Board meetings are held the first and third Monday of each month at Town Hall and are open to the public.
