Looks like the History Center of Tompkins County (and other non-profits) may be moving next year to the old Tompkins Financial Company's building (from the Ithaca Voice):

A new housing strategy draft for Tompkins County (Ithaca area) has come out. While the overall considerations are pointing toward much more housing of all types, I have a feeling there will be quite a bit of resistance by some locals (Nimbys) afraid the city/county can not handle the growth without altering their lifestyles. Anyway here are two reports on the draft proposal:

From the Ithaca Voice

From the Ithacating blog

https://ithacating.com/2017/05/18/th...sing-strategy/


Mostly the same info, but a bit of a different take on the issue.

The proposal for a new tallest downtown (Harold's Square) has been revised and is going before the City Planning and Development Board this week (attached in the first paragraph). From the Ithaca Voice:

There are also several other projects listed within the agenda.

Looks like a lot of new projects (mostly housing) have been approved by the city Planning Board (from the Ithaca Times):
