We are now less than four weeks away from the vernal equinox, and daytime high temperatures promise to remain above freezing for the foreseeable future. (For next Sunday, it's predicted to be 50 degrees!) Meanwhile, here are the meetings and events that can keep us fixed to our devices in the coming week.
- On Tuesday, February 23, the Hudson Development Corporation (HDC) Board of Directors meets at noon. The agenda for the meeting is not yet available, but the sale of the Kaz site, a.k.a. the Montgomery Street property, will undoubtedly be part of the discussion, although it is unclear how much of the discussion will be public. At the last HDC meeting, board president Bob Rasner advised, "Real estate transactions are confidential things until they are done. . . . The public must have confidence in the HDC board to do the right thing." Click here to join the Zoom meeting.
- On Wednesday, February 24, there are two ad hoc committee meetings: the committee charged with selling City-owned property, in an effort to replenish the fund balance, meets at 5:00 p.m.; the committee charged with exploring the idea of developing a solar farm on land owned by the City north of Charles Williams Park will meet at 6:15 p.m. The links to the meetings will be posted on the City of Hudson website sometime on Wednesday, prior to the meetings.
- On Thursday, February 25, the History Room of the Hudson Area Library presents People of Courage, People of Hope, Seekers of Justice--The Underground Railroad Revisited, a talk by Paul and Mary Liz Stewart, co-founders of the Underground Railroad Education Center.
