Here is the most recent news article about the Stone Quarry Apartment project,published in the Ithaca Voice:
Feds Say Ithaca’s Low Income Housing Developers Didn’t Disclose Toxic Contamination
In light of the undisclosed toxic contamination at the site, the federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) agency, which was going to give low income housing funds for this project, elected to make the City of Ithaca recomplete and resubmit their environmental assessment of this project for these funds. HUD will need to recertify the project.
The City of Ithaca has, again, concluded that this project would have no negative environmental impact. There is a 15 day window (ending August 27th) to give feedback to the City if you disagree with that conclusion. After that, there will be a 15 day comment period with which feedback could be provided to HUD about the City’s environmental assessment.
If you would like to give feedback to the City of Ithaca about this project, it can be mailed to:
Ithaca Urban Renewal Agency
City of Ithaca
108 E Green St
Ithaca, NY 14850
Or it can be e-mailed to Lynn Truame at: LTruame@cityofithaca.org.
