Legislature Endorses Route 96 Corridor Management Study

Tuesday, February 16, 2010
The Legislature, by unanimous vote, accepted and endorsed the Route 96 Corridor Management Study, which evaluates how development along the corridor from the Village of Trumansburg to the City of Ithaca would affect corridor traffic. The study, undertaken through a partnership involving the County, City of Ithaca, the Towns of Ithaca and Ulysses, and the Ithaca-Tompkins Transportation Council, concludes that a nodal development pattern, consistent with principles of the County's Comprehensive Plan, would be expected to reduce traffic, enhance traffic management, and preserve quality of life within that area. The measure formally supports continuation of cooperative planning efforts among the parties that conducted the study. It was stressed that the study is a document to provide planning guidance and that municipalities remain responsible for overseeing municipal land use. The other partner municipalities have all taken actions expressing some level of support for the study.
