Old Library Committee Prepares to Hear Redevelopment Proposals

Thursday, April 30, 2015

The special legislative committee charged with recommending a preferred developer for the Old Tompkins County Library today proceeded toward the next stage in the review process, hearing presentations from three prospective developers who responded to the County’s Request for Proposals.

Those presentations are scheduled at follows:

Friday, May 1             Rochester’s Cornerstone Group, Ltd.
Friday, May 8             Travis Hyde Properties team
Tuesday, May 12        Franklin Properties team

All presentations begin at 5:00 p.m. at County Legislature Chambers, located at the Governor Daniel D. Tompkins Building, Second Floor, 121 E Court Street, Ithaca.  Each presentation will be scheduled for 30-45 minutes, followed by the opportunity for questions from committee members and the public.  After the public portion of each meeting, the committee may go into executive session to discuss confidential elements of the proposals.

The three proposals are posted for review on the County web site at

Video files of the presentations also will be available for review after the meetings through the County’s Meeting Portal on the website at  (Click on the Old Library Committee meeting/Media.)

Written questions in advance of the presentations may be submitted to the Committee via e-mail at  (Please include “Old Library Committee” in the subject line.)

County Planning Commissioner Ed Marx has presented the committee with results from evaluation of the three proposals by County Planning staff.  That information, at present, is not being released beyond the committee; however, Chair Mike Lane indicated it will likely be released sometime in the future.

Regarding next steps, it was agreed that, following the May presentations, the committee will next meet in early June, with the goal of presenting a recommendation to the full Legislature by its June 19 meeting.
