Meetings of Interest in the Week Ahead

Tonight, Monday, June 4, the CD19 Candidate Debate takes place at Montgomery C. Smith Intermediate School, 102 Harry Howard Avenue, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets to the event were free, but they are no longer available. If you don't have a ticket, you can email to be put on the waiting list. 

Tuesday, June 5, the Conservation Advisory Council holds its monthly meeting at 6 p.m. at City Hall. Much of the agenda has to do with the Open Space and Natural Resources Inventory that the CAC has been working on since its inception, but there is one final agenda item that's intriguing: "Proposal regarding Oakdale Lake by Tamar Adler." I'm assuming that's the chef and food writer Tamar Adler.

Thursday, June 7, the beleaguered HDC (Hudson Development Corporation) board will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m., at 1 North Front Street. The subject of the meeting will be the redevelopment of the Kaz site. For anyone not up to speed on this issue, in April, community members raised a hue and cry that the project, which Gossips has been following since 2010, was moving too fast. In May, Common Council president Tom DePietro, who is ex officio a member of the HDC board, called the redevelopment of the Kaz site "a disconcerting process," alleged that the HDC board "called executive sessions with reckless abandon," and asked the city attorney to "look into how does one get rid of an LDC (local development corporation)." As a result of these demonstrations of no confidence, the project was "stalled" and three board members, as well as the board's attorney, resigned. Thursday's meeting promises to be both interesting and important.

Friday, June 8, the Historic Preservation Commission holds the first of its two monthly meetings at 10 a.m. at City Hall. No agenda is as yet available for the meeting, but it is likely that Jason O'Toole, representing the Galvan Foundation, will return with the proposals for a facade renovation at 364 Warren Street and for the exterior restoration of 356 Union Street.
