Why We Have Historic Districts

On Friday, Linda Mackey and Daniel McEneny from the Community Engagement Unit of the New York State Historic Preservation Office came to Hudson to talk with our Historic Preservation Commission about Hudson becoming a Certified Local Government, a program whose benefits include being able to compete for federal funds, technical training for the commission, and formal recognition by state and federal government. Their PowerPoint presentation concluded with this visual reminder of the importance of designated historic districts and the preservation ordinances that protect them.

  1. I doubt our current preservation folks would sign on to anything that would limit their arbitrary and capricious authority to do what they wanted.
