The City of Cortland Planning Commission will meet tonight at 5:15 at City Hall on Court Street in the City of Cortland. Items on the agenda tonight include converting office space to an apartment, preliminary work for a solar farm off of Pendleton Street, and a walk-in cooler for a well known business.
The Planning Commission will look first at a proposal to convert an office space at 18 Tompkins Street, to a three bedroom apartment. The front of the building currently has Seven Valley Insurance Agency. In the application, the applicant states the conversion will have an “easy transition” to residential.
Next on the agenda will be for a potential solar field at 136 South Pendleton Street in the City of Cortland. The land is known as a brownfield by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) with little to no opportunity for development as a majority of the ground has been capped to contain contaminants. The proposed solar field will generate 2.8 Megawatts on fixed tilt solar arrays that will cover about 10 acres.
Lastly, at 187 Homer Ave. (Foxy’s), a walk-in cooler has been submitted for a site plan review. The walk-in will be adjacent to the right of the building and will be approximately 10 feet wide, 8 feet high, and 16 feet long.
