Ithaca Marriott Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting

The grand opening of the Ithaca Marriott Hotel took place on Monday, December 12th. Many thanks were extended by everyone from the Ergo Hotel representative and Mayor Svante Myrick to the Lieutenant Governor of NYS, Kathy Hochul, for all the hard work that went into making the Marriott Hotel project a reality.  TCAD's Heather McDaniel spoke about how the Marriott will increase tax revenues and contribute to a vibrant Downtown.  

Tompkins County Housing Summit (Nov. 30 - Dec. 1)

TCAD and about 15 other area organizations helped plan and host the recent Tompkins County Housing Summit. It was a great success with over 300 participants. Christopher Coes led off with an inspiring keynote address. Local developers, bankers, municipal officials and citizen groups were represented on a panel that spoke very frankly about the challenges of developing more housing in the County. 

Martha Robertson spearheaded the initiative and will continue to lead a community discussion on housing issues. Martha Armstrong interviewed Martha Robertson about the Summit on WHCU. Click here to listen.   More information about the Summit may be found on the Housing  Tompkins
