Last week was almost meeting free, but that is not the case for the week ahead. In fact, on one night this week, there are meetings of interest happening at the very same time.
On Tuesday, February 6, the Conservation Advisory Council meets at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall. The agenda on the City of Hudson website provides this information: "The topic of this meeting will be a status report, review of rough drafts and revision of plans for completion of our Open Space and Natural Resources Inventory."
On Wednesday, February 7, there are two Common Council committee meetings. The newly renamed Youth, Education, Seniors and Recreation Committee (formerly the Youth and Aging Committee) meets at 5:30 p.m. The newly created Housing and Transportation Committee meets at 6:45 p.m. Both meetings take place at City Hall.
The conflicting meetings happen on Thursday, February 8. The Planning Board has its regular monthly meeting at 6:00 p.m., at the exact same time as the final DRI (Downtown Revitalization Initiative) public input session. There are two projects before the Planning Board, but the nature of the projects is unknown because no agenda for the meeting is yet available on the City website. The DRI meeting is the last opportunity for the community to review and express their preferences for projects proposed for DRI funding. The Planning Board meeting takes place at City Hall; the DRI public meeting happens at John L. Edwards Primary School.
On Friday, February 9, the Historic Preservation Commission holds its first of two meetings for February. The HPC meeting takes place at 10 a.m. at City Hall.
