309 N AuroraAfter 5 wonderful years at 109 S. Albany, Sustainable Tompkins has relocated its headquarters to the lovely historic house at 309 N. Aurora.  Because of strong growth in the green energy sector, our landlord at Taitem Engineering needed their building back to house new employees.  A planned relocation to the new Finger Lakes Reuse Center was substantially delayed, and through the kindness of member Stu Staniford, we were able to temporarily set up our office at his building at 317 N. Aurora for the fall.

We could not be happier to have found a permanent downtown location in the red house between United Way and the William Henry Miller Inn.  Our office suite has its own entrance at the rear of the building, and we have enough room to once again share our office with the Tompkins County Climate Protection Initiative.

Our move was made possible by the devoted efforts of our dear friends Nick Vaczek, Bob and Tracy Duckett, and Hurf and Melissa Sheldon who brought their trucks and tools and willing hands to help us move our gear out of our two previous office locations.  In early January, Finger Lakes Reuse will bring the rest of our furniture out of storage and we’ll get settled in completely.  We’re looking forward to hosting our colleagues, volunteers, and members in the coming year!
