Upcoming Meetings This Week

The holiday lull in meetings at City Hall is coming to an end. Tomorrow night at 7 p.m. the Planning Commission is scheduled to hold its January meeting. The December meeting was cancelled because not enough members to make a quorum were expected to attend. There was only one item on the agenda for that meeting: a proposal for 620 State Street that sounds very much like the return of Galvan Quarters but without the partnership with Columbia County.

The agenda for the Planning Commission meeting has not yet been published, but it's likely that this project will be on it.

On Friday morning, January 10, the Historic Preservation Commission meets at 10 a.m. The agenda for this meeting is already available on the City of Hudson website, and one of the items on the agenda is the "new construction" at 215 Union Street--in other words, the "reassembly" of 900 Columbia Street.

If you live on or near the 200 block of Union Street and are concerned about what the salvaged parts of 900 Columbia Street reassembled will look like, you are advised to show up for this meeting. The Historic Preservation Commission has shown a propensity for waiving public hearings, so if you want your input to be considered in their decision about granting a certificate of appropriateness, you had best be present when they review this project on Friday.

  1. In a recent comment here I was critical of the HPC/City for not making public notice in the paper, online or via mail re agenda and affected properties. I now see that the City does in fact make notice of HPC meetings on the City's website. I stand corrected and apologize for the error.
