Ear to the Ground

On February 12, in the Register-Star article that reported the Galvan Initiatives Foundation had rejected the $400,000 Community Development Block Grant the City had secured for the senior center, Adam Clayton revealed that T. Eric Galloway "recently stepped down from his role as CEO of Lantern Organization to devote more time and attention to the work of Galvan Foundation." 

The word is that Galloway has identified four projects to be pursued in 2014: the Armory, where work to adapt the drill hall for use by the Hudson Area Library and the officers' hall for use as a senior center is expected to begin next month; 364 and 366 Warren Street, where facade renovations and facade revisions, respectively, are planned; 202-204 Warren Street, which according to the latest rumor is to become some kind of subsidized housing; and 260 Warren Street, which, according to plans described two years ago by then Galvan executive director Tom Swope, is to be commercial space on the ground floor and three apartments--one each on the second and third floors and a duplex at the back of the building. The first two projects have gotten certificates of appropriateness from the Historic Preservation Commission within the past year. The latter two will have to come before the HPC again because several years have passed since either one has been reviewed by the HPC and the plans for one of them seem to have changed dramatically since a certificate of appropriateness was granted.
