Valley Alliance Files Legal Brief

Valley Alliance attorney Warren Replansky has filed a legal brief with the New York State Department of State refuting four assumptions that have influenced Hudson's current Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan. Those assumptions are:
  1. The City can advocate routing hundreds of trucks daily through wetlands without a full assessment of the likely impacts.
  2. Current waterfront-bound truck traffic and associated barge activity are a grandfathered, permitted, "as of right," or even necessary use.
  3. The abandoned South Bay railbed is a "road" exempt from permit reviews and consistent with Hudson's industrial zoning.
  4. There are economic benefits to the City from Holcim and O&G dominating South Bay and the Hudson dock.
A summary of the legal brief is on the Valley Alliance website, where you can download the document and its attachments or view them online.
