Common Council Explores Redesign of The Commons

Recently Sasaki Associates and Clough Harbour & Associates(engineers) presented several design options for a redesign of the Itaca Commons to Ithaca Commons Council and about 30 residents. A finalised preliminary design will be available in December, 2009.

“The Commons is a vital area for the Ithaca community, but some areas are in need of major repair,” said Susannah Ross, a senior associate at Sasaki Associates.

The first option was a minimal plan addressing some current issues and maintaining the existing design; the second option was a radical redesign inspired by “solar radiation” and the third was an “eclectic streetscape” plan.
