Public Hearing Scheduled on Hanshaw Road Reconstruction

Tuesday, February 16, 2010
The Legislature, by unanimous vote, scheduled a public hearing next month related to the project reconstructing Hanshaw Road in the Towns of Ithaca and Dryden and Village of Cayuga Heights. The hearing will be held Tuesday, March 16, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Legislature Chanber of the County Courthouse, 320 N. Tioga Street, Ithaca. The hearing, to be held under provisions of the Eminent Domain Procedure Law, will inform the public and review public use to be served by the reconstruction project, including impact on the environment and residents. Negotiations for approximately 57 permanent and 64 temporary easements for the project have not yet been completed, and the hearing will be held in case any land might need to be acquired via eminent domain procedures as a last resort.
