Notice of Acceptance of Final t-GEIS
Tompkins County - The Town of Ithaca Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final transportation-focused Generic Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Cornell University transportation-focused Generic Environmental Impact Statement. The action involves an identification, examination and evaluation of transportation-related impacts of hypothetical Cornell University population growth scenarios over the next decade on transportation systems and neighborhoods. The t-GEIS addresses these impacts by evaluating and proposing mitigation measures to encourage alternatives to single-occupancy vehicle use by those traveling to and from Cornell. A major objective of the t-GEIS is to develop ways to reduce the number of trips by motor vehicles traveling through residential neighborhoods to and from Cornell, and to identify ways of getting people, not vehicles, to campus. The project is located in the Town of Ithaca, New York.
