More News of the Waterfront

At its last meeting of the year, the Common Council unanimously passed a resolution expressing the City's intention to offer a license agreement to the Hudson Sloop Club "for the dockage of sailing vessels and establishment of an Estuary Education Center [in the southernmost embayment at Henry Hudson Riverfront Park], upon the condition that the grant from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is obtained in the most current grant cycle." The Hudson Sloop Club had received its 501(c)3 not-for-profit status just one week before, and the grant application had to be submitted the next day. The grants are expected to be awarded before the end of this month.

In today's Register-Star, John Mason reports on what the Hudson Sloop Club is proposing: "Grant sought for river education center."
