Sidewalk Improvement Plan Open House

The Department of Public Works will hold separate open houses for each of the five sidewalk improvement districts (SIDs) to present and receive feedback on the draft 2015 sidewalk work plan.

Spencer Road falls into Sidewalk Improvement District #4, which is shared with Elmira Road, southwest Ithaca, the south of the creek neighborhood, and South Hill (map).

Our open house will be:

Monday, July 21, 6:30-8:00pm
Tompkins Community Action, 701 Spencer Road (Conference Room) (map)

Based on these open house meetings, the Department will develop a final proposed work plan and budget to present to the Board of Public Works. Projects that are not included in the 2015 work plan will be considered for 2016.

Questions can be directed to Eric Hathaway, Sidewalk Program Manager, Engineering Division, at: (607) 274-6530 or: sidewalks@cityofithaca.org.
