Mr. Doyle used a GIS mapping tool to introduce this resolution and the display maps of the area involved. He explained that this is an acquisition by the Finger Lakes Land Trust with the support of the County and the Town of Ithaca. Following the acquisition, the Land Trust would sell a portion of the property under easements to a land owner to be determined.
