The Civic Hudson Project proposed for Fourth and Columbia streets by the Galvan Initiatives Foundation did not receive the funding it had hoped for from the Homeles Housing and Assistance Program. Tom Casey has the story in the Register-Star: "No grant money for Civic Hudson Project." Thanks to Sam Pratt for spreading the word about this news.
UPDATE: This story appeared just before 2:30 p.m. today. I read it at about 2:40 p.m. and posted the link to it at 3:00 p.m. A reader reports that it stayed online for about an hour and now cannot even be accessed by Google Reader.
UPDATE: At 5:00 p.m. the Register-Star posted a revised story on the subject of grant funding for the Civic Hudson Project: "State denies grant funding for Galvan project." The revised story refers to a press release from the Galvan Foundation which maintains that the foundation withdrew its applications for Civic Hudson in order to transfer their funding requests to the proposed facility at State and Seventh streets, which they are now calling "Galvan Quarters." This facility, which was originally to be 18 units of Tier I housing and 15 units of Tier II housing, is now being proposed as a 44-unit complex with Tier I, Tier II, and Tier III housing. (The Civic Hudson Project was previously intended to provide the Tier III housing.)
But it seems the Civic Hudson Project has not gone away. Galvan says it will "continue to attempt to develop Civic Hudson as a Police and Court house facility . . . [either as] 'a stand-alone facility or in combination with moderate income housing or other community facilities.'"
