Negative Declaration

Tompkins County - The City of Ithaca Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Five (5) Story, 44 Unit Apartment Building will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to build a 5 story apartment building on a 0.173 acre lot at the corner of College Avenue and Bool Street. The building will contain 44 dwelling units with approximately 76 bedrooms. The basement level will have a trash room, a fitness room with windows looking out to the street, and a bicycle garage for approximately 20 bikes with ramp access from a doorway on Bool Street. Other proposed amenities include landscaping, lighting, 4 outdoor bike racks, and street trees. The site has a 17 foot difference in elevation from the southwest corner to the northeast corner, rising from 690.00 to 707.00. Site development will require the removal of the existing 2 story wood-framed house containing 1 apartment with 12 bedrooms, gravel parking area, and five trees. The project is in the MU‐1 Collegetown Area Form District (CAFD) and requires Area Variance. The project is located at 201 College Avenue in the City of Ithaca, New York.
