Meetings of Interest in the Week Ahead

Yesterday, the groundhog predicted an early spring, and the anticipated temperatures for the week ahead are climbing into the 40s. A perfect week for a couple of nongovernmental meetings that look forward to warmer days.
  • On Monday, February 4, the Friends of the Hudson City Cemetery will hold a planning meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Community Room of the Hudson Area Library, 51 North Fifth Street. 
This meeting, which was originally scheduled for Tuesday, January 29, will follow up on issues discussed at the group's inaugural meeting: events and fundraisers; monument cleaning day; listing in the National Register of Historic Places; condition survey.
  • On Tuesday, February 5, the Tourism Board will hold a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. at 1 North Front Street to discuss the eight proposals it has received to help develop "a tourism branding and marketing strategy that encompasses strategic research and analysis, development of a competitive identity, brand strategy and marketing strategy." The goal of the discussion is to determine which of the eight groups or individuals that submitted proposals--Van Slyke Strategic Consulting, John Isaacs, Steve Chandler, BBG&G, Fifteen Degrees, Blass Marketing, Adworkshop, and New Design Group--the board would like to invite in to make a presentation. NOTE: This meeting has been canceled.

Also on Tuesday, February 5, the Conservation Advisory Council meets at 6:00 p.m. at City Hall. The public comment period on the draft Open Space and Natural Resources Inventory ended on February 1, and it is likely those comments will be discussed at the meeting. 
  • On Wednesday, February 6, two Common Council committee meetings take place at City Hall: the Youth, Education, Seniors, and Recreation Committee meets 5:30 p.m., and the Housing and Transportation Committee meets at 6:45 p.m. No agenda is available for either meeting, but it has been announced that the Hudson Housing Authority will be making a presentation about the RAD conversion, the two buildings proposed to be constructed on State Street across from Bliss Towers, and the exterior renovations proposed for Bliss Towers.
  • On Thursday, February 7, the exhibition Oakdale: Past and Future, a collaborative creation of Friends of Oakdale Lake, Friends of Hudson Youth, the Hudson Area Library, Columbia University's Hudson Valley Initiative, and the City of Hudson Youth Department's "Oakdale campers," opens in the Community Room of the Hudson Area Library, 51 North Fifth Street. The opening event, which will include a short video of the Hudson Valley Initiative's findings and final design concept for Oakdale, takes place from 6 to 8 p.m.
  • On Friday, February 8, the Historic Preservation Commission holds the first of its two regular monthly meetings at 10 a.m. at City Hall.
