Meeting Reminder

This Wednesday, June 24, the proposal to redesign the approach and entrance to Promenade Hill and spruce up the park itself will be presented to the public for the first time. The meeting takes place at 3 p.m. at 1 North Front Street.

Landscape architect Dragana Zoric has been working pro bono for more than a year on the plan for Promenade Hill, which incorporates a handicapped ramp at the entrance. A month or so ago, Bill Roehr of TGW Consultants, reported that the State Historic Preservation Office was reviewing the plans. Presumably they have passed muster with SHPO and are now ready for us, the people of Hudson, to see. The City will be seeking grant funding for the Promenade Hill project in this year's Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) process. The grant applications are due at the end of July. Wouldn't it have been nice if public input had been sought during the process of conceptualizing this project instead of now with only a month to go before the applications are due?

If you can't make it to Wednesday afternoon's meeting, another meeting on the topic is planned for Wednesday, July 8, at 6 p.m. That meeting will also take place at 1 North Front Street.

  1. The picture above tells all...If our near sighted "leaders" would make use of four stories of wasted airspace over our shorefront, they could pay for upgrades to the Promenade out of petty cash.
