Positive Declaration

Tompkins County - The City of Ithaca Landmarks Preservation Commission, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed demolition of the former Ithaca Gas Works, (Ithaca Court Street MGP site), may have a significant adverse environmental impact and that a draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared.

The action involves demolition of a building designated a local landmark by the Ithaca Landmarks Preservation Commission and determined eligible for listing on the New York State and National Register of Historic Places by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. Demolition is proposed in conjunction with planned remediation of the Ithaca Court Street MGP site by the New York State Electric and Gas Company, (NYSEG). NYSEG investigations have shown that contaminants are located adjacent to the building and are likely to be located under the building. The Draft EIS will determine feasibility of alternatives to the demolition including moving the building either permanently or temporarily during the soils remediation or supporting the building to permit excavation underneath.
