As I get closer to the Dryden/Ithaca boundary, one parcel really stands out. It's 45 acres of Cornell fields, actively farmed. It's large enough to build a community on it, and it's convenient to Cornell and not far from East Hill Plaza. It's large enough that it could have internal roads or even sidewalks, and be a rare pedestrian-friendly area.

I don't expect anything to happen here soon - the Draft Comprehensive Plan shows it as agricultural, and there's no sign Cornell wants to develop this, but if there's a parcel in the town that could be under development pressure, this one's a good candidate.Posted by simon at August 15, 2004 1:29 PM in Cornell , Varna , photos , planning and zoning
