Peter Markou Resigns
The Register-Star reported today what some have known for a while now. After being elected treasurer of Greene County, Peter Markou has resigned his position as executive director of the Hudson Development Corporation (HDC) and the Hudson Community Development and Planning Agency (HCDPA): "City bids farewell to Peter Markou." Markou's departure raises questions about the future of projects that he has been shepherding: in particular, the renovation of the Washington House firehouse and the development there of a small business incuberator; the sale of the surviving building of the Hudson River Knitting Mill compound; and the acquisition of the old Kaz warehouses on Cross Street.
