  • Finally on Tuesday, April 27, the Tourism Board holds another meeting at 6:00 p.m. The topic of the meeting is Project Hudson.

  • On Wednesday, April 28, the Common Council ad hoc committee dedicated to selling City-owned property meets at 5:00 p.m. At the last meeting of this committee, it seemed 429 Warren Street was the prime candidate for sale, since it was "the one with the least problems." The plan was to move the Code Enforcement Office, now located in the building, into modular units parked across Washington Street from the Central Fire Station. Every City-owned property is still on the table, including the three parcels on the waterfront north of the Dunn warehouse, which, according to Council president Tom DePietro, someone has approached the City about developing. The link to the Zoom meeting should appear on the City of Hudson website prior to the meeting. Scroll down to the calendar.  
  • Also on Wednesday, April 28, the subcommittee of the Hudson Housing Authority Board of Commissioners meets at 6:00 p.m. The topic of this week's meeting is tenant relations. Click here to join the Zoom meeting.
  • At 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 28, the Common Council ad hoc committee pursuing the idea of building a solar farm on City-owned land north of Charles Williams Park holds its monthly meeting. The goal set at the last meeting of the committee was to have a draft of the RFP (request for proposals) ready for review at this meeting. The link to the Zoom meeting should appear on the City of Hudson website prior to the meeting. Scroll down to the calendar. 
  • On Thursday, April 29, at 6:00 p.m., the History Room at the Hudson Area Library and the Jacob Leisler Institute for the Study of Early New York History present "Coping with Life's Necessaries," a lecture on colonial hygiene by Ian Mumpton, from the Schuyler Mansion State Historic Site.
