- On Tuesday, August 7, the Conservation Advisory Council meets at 6 p.m. There will be a report on the current status of the street tree inventory being conducted by CAC members and volunteers. Also at the meeting, the CAC will continue its review of draft maps for the Natural Resources and Open Space Inventory. The meeting takes place at City Hall.
- On Thursday, August 9, the Planning Board meets at 6 p.m. On the agenda is the site plan review of the lot line adjustment requested for 248 and 250 Columbia Street--a project that is also currently before the Zoning Board of Appeals. The agenda also indicates that the board will be discussing the Common Council request for a recommendation on proposed Local Law No. 5, which would "amend the zoning law with regard to conditional uses in the R2 and R2H zoning districts." This is the zoning amendment that would permit Stewart's and also Scali's to expand into adjacent lots. The meeting takes place at City Hall.
- On Friday, August 10, the Historic Preservation Commission meets at 10 a.m. at City Hall. No agenda is available for this meeting but it is likely that the proposal to build a new residential structure on Partition Street behind 17-19 Union Street will be among the projects to be reviewed.
Although it is not a meeting, there is one more thing that should be on your calendar for this week: the First Annual Oakdale Lake Picnic, hosted by Friends of Hudson Youth and Friends of Oakdale Lake.
The picnic takes place, of course, at Oakdale Lake from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday, August 9. There will be hotdogs, homemade pickles, ice cream, and a preview of an exhibition called "Oakdale Past and Future" developed by the Hudson Area Library.COPYRIGHT 2018 CAROLE OSTERINK
