Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan.

 For the most recently updated information visit the Facebook page at

From 2016 to mid-2017, an “Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Plan for Tompkins County” was coordinated by the Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council who, with several other key organizations in the area, formed a Steering Committee to oversee this effort. The purpose of this project was to support Tompkins County in the transition to increased electric vehicle use and to help communities prepare and encourage EV adoption and use.

Complete Streets Network Map

(Prepared by the ITCTC)

The Planning Committee of the ITCTC has identified a well coordinated network of roads to form a Complete Streets Network for the urbanized area of Tompkins County. A ‘Complete Street’ is a street designed and operated to enable safe access for all users regardless of their mode of transportation, so that pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists or public transportation users of all ages and abilities are able to move safely along and across the street.

   Urbanized Area Boundary Map (UAB)

   (Prepared by the ITCTC)

Section 101 of Title 23 USC, mandates that an Urbanized Area Boundary (UAB) be fixed around urban areas of over 50,000 population, as determined by the United States Bureau of the Census. In urbanized areas, the designation of the Urbanized Area Boundary shall be based on the continuing, cooperative and comprehensive transportation planning process carried on by state and local communities. The US Census Bureau, the NY State Department of Transportation and the ITCTC  collaborated to update the Ithaca Urbanized Area map to accommodate the results of the 2020 Census. The 2020 Urbanized Area Boundary was redefined by the United States Bureau of the Census based upon housing density and population as identified in the 2020 Census. NYSDOT, in coordination with the ITCTC, adjusted the Census defined boundary to accommodate exiting conditions. The 2020 Adjusted Census Defined Ithaca Urban Area boundary is shown in this map.
