Two Things Happening on Thursday

On Thursday, November 30, at 6 p.m. the DRI (Downtown Revitalization Initiative) Local Planning Committee is having an extra meeting to get through the things they didn't get to at their last meeting, in preparation for another public engagement workshop on Thursday, December 7. Both meetings, the LPC meeting and the public meeting, take place at John L. Edwards Primary School.

Also on Thursday night at 6 p.m., the Cornell Cooperative Extension is holding a Complete Streets Forum. "Complete Streets" are those designed for use by bicycles and pedestrians as well as cars. The purpose of the forum is to discuss "how Complete Streets may benefit the communities of the Hudson City School District and how community members and groups can get involved." The forum takes place at the Extension Education Center, 479 Route 66, in Claverack.

One thing to bear in mind when deciding which meeting to attend is that when the DRI planning process began in October, it was predicted that "by December we will be getting very close to the final concept." Observing the last LPC meeting, it's hard to imagine how that will happen, but it's almost December, and it's important to keep an eye on the process.

  1. someone please invite Hudson DPW head Rob Perry to the Complete Streets forum. He should be required to go. Pedestrians and bicyclists seem to be an afterthought in maintaining streets and sidewalks these days
