Gossips reported a week ago that the Hudson Housing Authority had withdrawn its proposed project from review by the Planning Board and the project was likely to be a topic of discussion at this evening's meeting of the HHA Board of Commissioners.
Last night, Amanda Purcell reported on the status of the project on HudsonValley 360: "Hudson Housing Authority goes back to square one." In the article, HHA executive director, Tim Mattice is quoted as saying, "The developers are still undertaking a number of soil and engineering work [sic] that's not completed yet, which could alter the design or scope of the project. Once these studies are finalized, we will submit our final project plans and any other information earlier requested by the [Planning Board]." The article also reports that Mattice said HHA is "looking at ways to address concerns raised at public meetings by 'the mayor, city leaders and the public about the Housing Authority not including in their plans building scattered site developments of low-income housing throughout the city.'" The meeting of the HHA Board of Commissioners takes place at 6:00 p.m. this evening in the Community Room at Bliss Towers, 41 North Second Street. COPYRIGHT 2019 CAROLE OSTERINK
