At 7 p.m. tonight, the Hudson Common Council holds its informal meeting, at which new resolutions are introduced and discussed. Although the agenda for tonight's meeting has not yet been published, Common Council meetings are rarely lacking in intrigue, so that's where Gossips will be.
But there's another meeting happening tonight of great interest and importance: the Claverack Town Board meeting, that which the board is expected to discuss an amendment to the Claverack zoning code--the adoption of the Planned Development District (PDD)--that would permit the massive development proposed by Amedore Homes for a site on Route 9H just south of the intersection with Route 66.
Recommended reading for anyone who is not familiar with what's being proposed and what's at stake is a piece by Enid Futterman published yesterday on Imby: "Stupid Growth--NOT IN OUR BACK YARD." The town board meeting, which begins at 6 p.m., takes place at Claverack Town Hall, 836 Route 217, on Mellenville.
