Dogs took another step toward being able to walk with their humans in Henry Hudson Riverfront Park without the fear of being cited for breaking the law or the stigma of willfully ignoring it. Last night, the Common Council voted to place on their desks proposed Local Law No. 8, which would amend Section 70-4 of the city code "to permit dogs to be present at the Riverfront Park."
Also last night, the Common Council passed a resolution authorizing the City to apply for a Restore NY grant "for the demolition and redevelopment of properties located at the former KAZ site at 14-17 Montgomery Street."
A portion of the Kaz warehouse has already been demolished by the owners of The Wick.
It will be remembered that the City was awarded a $500,000 Restore NY grant at the beginning of this year to stabilize the Dunn building and arrest the deterioration. Eleven months later, none of that money has been spent, and no work has been done to preserve the building.
A public hearing on the City's latest Restore NY grant application for funds to demolish and redevelop the Kaz warehouse site has been scheduled for Monday, December 11, at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
