If you are not among the 226 people who have already viewed yesterday's virtual town hall meeting on the topic of Hudson Shared Summer Streets, you can view the meeting here.
What's most important to remember is that next weekend--June 19 through June 21--will be the trial/rehearsal weekend for the shared streets plan. From 10 a.m. on Friday, June 19, until 10 p.m. on Sunday, June 21, Warren Street, from Front Street to Seventh Street, will be closed to through vehicular traffic to allow restaurants and shops to expand out into the parking lane and allow patrons to stay outdoors and maintain an appropriate distance by walking in the street. If necessary, a car can venture onto a block of Warren Street, but it must do so slowly, mindful that the street is being shared with pedestrians.
The trial/rehearsal weekend will be followed by a month of gathering feedback and making improvements and adjustments. If it all works out, the shared streets program will continue through October.
