Kitchen Theater Moves To, And Cornell Studies, Ithaca's West End

The Kitchen Theater is moving from its longtime space near the Ithaca Commons to the West End.

The theater leaves its rental space in the Clinton House to a building it has purchased on West State Street, between Plain and Corn Streets.

It joins a number of businesses born or moving to W. State St. in the past few years, including Fine Line restaurant, Mama Goose children's clothing, Gimme Coffee, Quilter's Corner, Small World Music, Finger Lakes Beverage Center, Cayuga Ski and Cyclery, and Alternatives Federal Credit Union.

Cornell University is holding a public meeting this week on West End development.

"Ithaca's West End: Issues and Opportunities" is sponsored by Cornell's Department of City and Regional Planning.

The department has interviewed dozens of West End residents and businesses, and studied data from government sources. It is examining topics such as transportation, housing, streetscapes, open space, sense of community, and business conditions.

The public is encouraged to attend and offer perspectives. The meeting is Tuesday 25 November, at the Public Library, from 7 - 9 pm.
