New Owner, New Plan

In May 2017, the Historic Preservation Commission approved a plan for the renovation of 205-207 Warren Street that involved converting the ground floor into commercial spaces with storefronts. 

Work on the proposed project never started. Instead, a "For Sale" sign appeared on the building. Last month, a new design for the building, involving no commercial space only residential apartments, came before the HPC.

The new plan, which involves replacing the vinyl siding with Hardiplank, installing new two over two windows, adding wood panels below the ground floor windows, and enhancing the entrance with a new pediment, entablature, and pilasters, was granted a certificate of appropriateness by the HPC this morning.


  1. How does one access the "Agenda" for Historic Preservation meeting?
    Where are the "Minutes" ?
    Is there a Board member in charge of those two things to contact?

    1. The Historic Preservation Committee is currently without a secretary, so agendas and minutes are not getting posted, but if they were, they would be found on the City of Hudson website: Click on "Departments," click on "Boards and Committees," click on "Historic Preservation Commission," and there you will find the link for "Agendas" and "Minutes," and you will also find the email address of the chair of the HPC, Phil Forman.
