How We Help Grow Business in Downtown
The Downtown Ithaca Alliance assists businesses and investors interested in downtown Ithaca projects.
Because the Downtown Ithaca Alliance is charged with preserving and developing the central downtown core as the region’s center for banking and finance, business and professional offices, government and community services, downtown residences, specialty shops, restaurants, arts and entertainment, the Downtown Ithaca Alliance is always available to help.
