Photos: Community gets first look at early Immaculate Conception site plans

first_imgBelow are some of the preliminary design images courtesy of INHS. Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services, which recently purchased the former school at 320 W. Buffalo St., held its first community engagement session Wednesday evening to gather community feedback. When announcing the purchase in January, INHS said it has plans to turn the site into a mixed-use community that will address high-priority community needs like affordable housing. Demarest said Catholic Charities will be getting a full renovation. The former 9,156 square-foot gym will be disconnected and stand alone with some upgrades to improve the entrance off of Court Street, Demarest said. At the Planning and Economic Development Committee meeting, also Wednesday, the committee voted in favor of purchasing the building. It will head to Common Council for consideration in early March. Kelsey O’Connor ITHACA, N.Y. — The Greater Ithaca Activities Center gym was filled with neighbors and community members Wednesday curious to see early plans for the redevelopment of the Immaculate Conception site and weigh in with initial thoughts. center_img There will be more community meetings in the future to gather feedback and share plans as they evolve. Truame said one of the next steps will be to work on a financial plan to figure out how to reduce the number of units to remove one of the stories from the building. The next community engagement meeting will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 28 at GIAC.

(Kelsey O’Connor/The Ithaca Voice) Lynn Truame, senior real estate developer at INHS, said over email Thursday that she found the meeting very productive. The community raised concern about a couple aspects of the project so far, including the height of the building. The early plans showed a five-story building, which people opposed. People were more positive about four stories. Traffic in that area was the other big concern. Truame said they are aware of the issue and “diligently looking for ways to actually improve, rather than worsen” the parking. At the meeting, Noah Demarest, of STREAM Collaborative, told attendees that the plans presented are “very preliminary images.” He said everything they have done so far has been with “an eye toward the city’s comprehensive plan.” However, he acknowledged that there will be some zoning challenges ahead. The site is nestled right into a residential neighborhood, next to Beverly J. Martin Elementary School, GIAC, and parks, and has a campus feel to it. The early site plans show a five-story apartment building for the site as well as clusters of townhome-style development. They also have an existing building on the site they are looking at renovating.last_img read more

University to change primary Wi-Fi networks

first_imgThe Office of Information Technologies (OIT) announced April 4 that the Wi-Fi on Notre Dame’s main campus would be switched to a new network this summer. The change, which was announced in a campus-wide email, is planned for June 4, 2017, and will see the University switching from “ND-secure,” the current Wi-Fi network, to “Eduroam.”In the email, OIT said the goal of the change was “[t]o provide a more reliable wireless service,” and specified it “will not affect any of the Global Gateway locations.” The email also encourages students to install the new utility required for “Eduroam” access before “ND-secure” is removed in June.On its website, “Eduroam” describes itself as “the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.“‘Eduroam’ allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop.” “Eduroam” is already widely used among American colleges and institutions, including Duke University, the University of California colleges and the National Institutes of Health, among others. Chris Corrente, Manager of Applications Development within OIT, said in an email the switch was motivated by a desire to simplify internet access on campus and by the added ability to access the network from off-campus.“Given that ‘Eduroam’ and ‘ND-secure’ provide the same level of functionality and access, our goal is to simplify the network infrastructure and provide improved support by standardizing on a single secure wireless network for campus.” he said. “‘ … Eduroam’ provides the same level of performance, access and security as that of ‘ND-secure.’ The added benefit is that not only can you connect to the ‘Eduroam’ wireless network here on campus, you can also connect to it when visiting other schools that are part of the ‘Eduroam’ community.”Despite the network change, Corrente also said, “Students will not notice any change in the Internet services they can access when switching from ND-secure to ‘Eduroam.’”The move to “Eduroam,” Corrente also said in an email interview, is expected to be in place for a long time.“At this time, the change is part of the long-term future for the campus wireless network,” he said. “As with all technology, the OIT will assess any future changes as needed to meet the wireless needs of campus.”Corrente also urged students to get on the network as soon as possible, although “ND-secure” will remain until June.“Because Back-to-School week is a busy time for students, we recommend students switch their devices to ‘Eduroam’ before leaving for the summer,” he said.“Once you return to campus in August, you will be already set up to connect to the wireless network.”The “Eduroam” utility needed for accessing the network can be installed at eduroam.nd.edu and OIT help line can be reached at help.nd.edu.Tags: Eduroam, Office of Information Technologieslast_img read more
