Meetings and Events in the Week Ahead

It's the final week of February, the start of daylight saving time is only two weeks away, and there is much to do in the next seven days.
  • On Monday, February 24, the Common Council Fire Committee meets at 5:30 p.m. and the Police Committee meets at 6:00 p.m. Both meetings take place at City Hall. Last Tuesday, the resolution to extend the intermunicipal agreement for the Shared Services Response Team was referred to the Police Committee, so at Monday's committee meeting it is expected that there will be talk about "militarized raids" and appeals for the police to be "guardians not warriors." It will be interesting to see if the new police commissioner Peter Volkmann will be at the meeting and what he will have to say about the Shared Services Response Team. 
  • On Tuesday, February 25, at 11 a.m., the Hudson IDA will hold a special meeting to hear a presentation from 620 Hudson House LLC to convert the former Home for the Aged at 620 Union Street into a 50-room hotel. The presentation is expected to include information about the incentives the group is seeking from the IDA. The meeting takes place at the offices of CEDC (Columbia Economic Development Corporation), One City Centre, Suite 301. The meeting will be livestreamed and can be viewed here.
  • Also on Tuesday, February 25, the Hudson Development Corporation (HDC) meets at noon at 1 North Front Street. The HDC board is expected to continue its pursuit of new members, revisions to its bylaws, and a plan for the Kaz warehouse site.
  • At the end of the day on Tuesday, February 25, Christ Church Episcopal holds its annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper from 5 to 7 p.m. at 431 Union Street.  
  • On Wednesday, February 26, the Common Council Public Works and Parks Committee meets at 5:00 p.m. and the Legal Committee meets at 6:15 p.m. Both meetings take place at City Hall. The proposed law that would extend the mayor's term of office to four years was referred to the Legal Committee last Tuesday, so that will be added to the long-term agenda items: legislation to regulate short-term rentals and legislation to address the problem of substandard and nonexistent sidewalks in the city. 
  • On Thursday, February 27, the Hudson Community Incubator has its soft launch from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Barnfox, 320 Warren Street. 
  • On Friday, February 28, at 9:30 a.m., the Historic Preservation Commission holds a public hearing on the designation of the church building at 241 Columbia Street, originally the location of Shiloh Baptist Church, as a local landmark. The hearing takes place at City Hall.
At 10:00 a.m. on Friday, February 28, the Historic Preservation Commission holds its regular meeting. It is expected that the plans for expanding the Home for the Aged into a 50-room hotel will be presented to the commission at this meeting.
  • On Saturday, February 29, it's the third annual Oakdale Plunge. The Costume Contest, with celebrity judges, begins at noon, and soon thereafter the plunging commences. It all happens at Oakdale Lake, appropriately on Leap Day!
