While the City of Hudson moves forward with its residential parking permit plan to ameliorate the parking situation around the hospital, there's word that Columbia Memorial Health is pursuing its own plan to address parking. As has been reported here before, CMH acquired the building that housed COARC's Starting Place program last year.
The Galvan Foundation is now pursuing a plan to relocate the COARC daycare program to the basement of the Galvan Armory. That proposal is currently before the Planning Board.
Meanwhile, Gossips has learned that CMH plans to move the administrative offices now in the former Eden Park nursing home building to the former COARC building and then demolish the Eden Park building and construct in its place a multi-level parking garage that will accommodate 444 vehicles and have an enclosed walkway over Prospect Avenue from the garage to the main hospital building. Below is an example of an enclosed walkway connecting buildings at the Albany Medical Center, with which CMH now has an affiliation.
