The Tompkins County Legislature passed Local Law C in 1991, that banned discrimination based on sexual orientation. Additional info on this historic development can be found at the Ithaca High School, Kulp Auditorium site on this tour.
In 2004, the law was revised to include gender identity and gender expression in addition to sexual orientation. This law provides protections to residents based on sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression in the areas of housing, commercial space, lending, employment, education, and places of public accommodation.
Also on this site in June 2017, the legislature passed its first ever LGBTQ Pride Month Proclamation.
Entrance to Legislative Chambers is at the back of the building facing Dewitt Park. Chambers are located on 2nd Floor with access by stairs or elevator
