On October 14, the Hudson River Valley Greenway announced the recipients of its Greenway Communities Grants. The City of Hudson Conservation Advisory Council received $3,700 to purchase software and a computer to be used to create a GIS mapping database.
The CAC is also applying for a grant from the Department of Environmental Conservation's Hudson River Estuary Program. The grant, if awarded, would fund hiring a consultant to manage the natural resources and open space inventory being undertaken by the CAC, to draft a conservation plan for the city which would be an amendment to the 2002 Comprehensive Plan, and to plan and implement a public participation process to inform the conservation plan.
