The action involves a proposal by the State University Construction Fund (SUCF) to construct a Student Life Center on an 8.5-acre site on the SUNY Cortland campus. The proposed two story building would total approximately 146,724 gross square feet and the structure would be approximately 50 feet tall at the highest point. The project will support a wide variety of recreational and social uses including, but not limited to weight lifting, fitness, recreational athletics, climbing, swimming, jogging, games, informal gatherings, and dining.

The Project site currently consists of the Davis Field outdoor track and athletic field, the Campus Community Bike Shop, and a back-flow prevention building.

Existing parking along Pashley Drive will also be eliminated as part of the site development. In addition, two existing basketball courts and two existing tennis courts located immediately south of the proposed Student Life Center site may be removed to allow for the installation of replacement parking spaces. A mix of landscaping (including newly planted trees and foundation plantings), paved areas, and lawn are proposed for the areas surrounding the Student Life Center.

The project is located off of Pashley Drive and Lankler Drive Extension (also known as Stratton Drive) on the SUNY Cortland campus, in the City of Cortland, New York.
