Mark Your Calendars

Two public hearings have been scheduled for Tuesday, November 13.

The first one, which takes place at 5:30 p.m., is about the City of Hudson's application for a grant from the New York State Transportation Enhancements Program (TEP). The City is seeking funding for pedestrian and bike connections to Charles Williams Park. 

This description of the project is from the notice for the public hearing:
The project consists of painted bike lanes and signage to be installed on North Front Street, from Ferry Street to Dock Street, bike lanes and signage installed along Dock Street and only signage installed along Mill Street. The non-motorized vehicle path at Old Dugway Road, between Mill Street and Harry Howard Avenue is to be repaved and finally, approximately 1,300 linear feet of concrete sidewalk is to be installed along the west side of Harry Howard Avenue, beginning at Washington Street and continuing to The Volunteer Fireman’s Home. 
The hearing is being held to solicit input from the public "regarding any potential social, economic and environmental impact . . . and to allow the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed project." 

A second public hearing follows at 6:00 p.m., the topic of which is the City's application for a $200,000 EPA Brownfield grant to continue the cleanup of the old Foster's Refrigeration site on North Second Street. It will be recalled that this site has been proposed as the location of a city dog park.

Both hearings take place at City Hall. If you are unable to attend the hearings, written comments can be submitted. Comments on the TEP grant application should be submitted to the city clerk prior to November 13. Written comments on the EPA Brownfield grant will be accepted through November 16 and can be emailed to John Duchessi or submitted to his attention to the city clerk.
