The Hudson Planning Board tonight begins its review of the haul road being proposed by A. Colarusso & Son from their facility on Newman Road to the waterfront. The road going east from Route 9G has already been transformed from the rutted path it was a year ago into a widened gravel road. The first 930 feet of that road are in the City of Hudson, in an area zoned R-C, Recreational Conservation.
The proposal also includes widening the road going west from Route 9G--the "causeway" that runs through South Bay--and moving it slightly to the south. There is some debate about whether causeway refers to the actual roadway or to the filled-in berm through South Bay on which the roadway is situated. According to one definition, the proposal is to move the causeway; according to the other, the proposal is to move the roadway on the causeway. The difference may have significant legal implications.
The Planning Board meets at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
