Legislature Passes New Resolutions on Acquisition of Trust Company Building

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

The Legislature approved new resolutions regarding acquisition by the County of the Tompkins Trust building on the Ithaca Commons, to house the History Center, along with co-located non-profits, to be known as the Tompkins Center for History and Culture.

The new resolutions, both approved by unanimous vote, repeal the initial resolutions passed June 6th, and replace them with versions that reflect completion of a full environmental quality assessment, rather than the short-form version approved earlier. Since passage of the initial resolutions, attorneys had advised that, since the property is located in a historic district, conducting a full environmental assessment was appropriate.
