STREAM Collaborative is consulting with Form Ithaca, an initiative to help support the ongoing efforts of the City and Town of Ithaca, NY to update land use regulations to meet the goals and objectives of their comprehensive plans. The project supports a full range of housing and lifestyle options within a framework that facilitates transportation choice, a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, and a strong economy for the region.
