Attending every public meeting and staying to the very end can have its rewards. Such was the case tonight. At the end of a meeting of the Hudson Housing Authority Board of Commissioners, which went on for two hours, Common Council president Tom DePietro, who also attends every public meeting, shared information he said would be of interest to the board, which is currently engaged in working toward a plan to redevelop HHA properties. He announced that, at next week's Common Council meeting, there would be a presentation by a developer interested in adapting the former John L. Edwards School as affordable housing.
DePietro did not name the developer but said, "They don't want a PILOT. They only want to add a floor or two."
Next week's Common Council meeting, which is the regular meeting for the month, takes place on Tuesday, March 16, at 7:00 p.m.
