The suspense builds in the urban planning version of Survivor that is the Downtown Revitalization Initiative process. The committee of ten, made up of two representatives from each of the five Hudson DRI subcommittees (Transportation, Livable Communities, Workforce, Food, Waterfront), met on Friday with state officials and local staff to review the thirty projects in the running for DRI funding and public input about those projects. Needless to say, it was a "working meeting," in other words, not a meeting the public was invited to attend and observe, so no information has yet emerged about which of the thirty projects are likely to make it into the draft Hudson DRI Investment Plan to be delivered to the Department of State on March 5. The "key elements" of this plan are expected to be revealed when the Local Planning Committee meets on March 1. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. at John L. Edwards Primary School.
