Hi Ho, Hi Ho

…to the Zoning Board we go! We’ve given the Town of Ithaca Zoning Board of Appeals a bunch of information to sift through so now we go before them with heads held high and fingers crossed in hopes of receiving the use variance we need on 614 South Elmira Road. Bring your posse to show support on Monday, November 21 from 7-9 pm at 215 North Tioga Street. Once we’re successful on this front, we can start having even more fun!
