ADVOCACY ALERT: HISTORIC ITHACA SUPPORTS INDIVIDUAL LANDMARK DESIGNATION FOR FORMER RAILROAD STATION

Former DL&W Station-1The Ithaca Landmarks Preservation Commission (ILPC) has proposed individual landmark designation for the former Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad Station located at 701 West Seneca Street. The former station was most recently used as a bus terminal, but that service has now been discontinued.

Historic Ithaca supports the individual landmark designation of this important historic building and expressed this support in a letter to the ILPC. The ILPC voted to approve designation at its November meeting, and you can read coverage of the process in this Ithaca Voice article and Ithaca Times report.

The nomination now heads to the Planning and Economic Development Committee for a vote at its meeting on December 12 at 6:00 p.m. in Common Council Chambers, 3rd Floor, City Hall, 108 E. Green Street. Show your support at the meeting and in writing before the meeting to Planning and Economic Development Committee members:
