Throughout the summer, Historic Ithaca has been advocating for the proposed local landmark designations of the Chacona Block (411-415 College Avenue) and Larkin Buiding (403 College Avenue) in Ithaca’s Collegetown neighborhood. Historic Ithaca and community members spoke in favor of these designations at public meetings of the Ithaca Landmarks Preservation Commission (ILPC) on July 11th and August 8th. We’re happy to report the ILPC voted to recommend both designations to Common Council. Your support is still needed as the designations move through the city process, and we will keep you informed of opportunities to voice your support for the protection of these important historic resources.

Historic Ithaca put together Q&A style information sheets detailing how each building qualifies for Local Landmark designation:
