Ithaca Sustainable Master Plan presentations on Monday, May 10 at 7:30PM

Students in two School of Business classes that have been working on the Sustainable Master Plan for the Ithaca-Tompkins Regional Airport will present their final reports on Monday, May 10th at 7:30PM. This presentation will be held in the Carl Sgrecci classroom 111 in the Dorothy D. and Roy H. Park Center for Business and Sustainable Enterprise. The public is welcome to attend and learn more about our students' involvement in this innovative planning process.

Teams of undergraduate students in Dr. Scott Erickson's "Social and Non-Profit Marketing" class and MBA students in Dr. Joe Sprangel's "Sustainability Practices in Operations and Technology" class will present their recommendations for more sustainable airport operations. The teams have been working closely throughout the semester with representatives from the Ithaca-Tompkins Regional Airport and consultants from C&S Engineers in Syracuse on Phase II Implementation Strategies for this master planning process.

Ithaca-Tompkins Regional Airport's Sustainable Master Plan is the first such plan to be undertaken by a United States airport. The Federal Aviation Administration is closely monitoring this planning effort in hopes that this plan will become a template for other domestic airports to follow to become more sustainable.
