Yesterday and today, Facebook has been alive with notices about tonight's public hearing, both from opponents and proponents of Colarusso. Tonight, we're likely to see at the Central Fire Station a repeat of the turnout for the "special informational meeting" about the haul road held at Columbia-Greene Community College by the Greenport Planning Board back in April 2017.
The number of attendees may necessitate moving tonight's public hearing from the meeting room at the fire station to the giant truck bay, as happened back in February 2013, when the Common Council Legal Committee, in the aftermath of the shooting of children and teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, was contemplating banning guns from city buildings and city parks.
Yesterday, in preparation for tonight's public hearing, a new post appeared on The Valley Alliance website: "The Waterfront Should Benefit Everyone . . . Not Just a Single Corporation." It is recommended reading for all who care about Hudson and its waterfront.
