Local Impact

Ithaca is a small community. Economic growth isn’t compartmentalized by municipal boundaries. For instance, even though the Tech Park is in the Village of Lansing, the tax revenues are shared by community:

  • 67% goes to local schools
  • 19% goes to Tompkins County
  • Village of Lansing keeps only 6%

Likewise, even though it's located outside the heart of the City, Tech Park employees also support downtown:

  • 74% shop downtown Ithaca
  • 85% go out to dinner downtown Ithaca
  • 87% use downtown Ithaca services (dry cleaning, auto repair, etc.)
  • 66% go downtown Ithaca for entertainment (theater, movies, music)
