The Hudson Housing Authority is planning to do something with its properties, but it is not clear what that will be. On Wednesday, Farzana Moshi of the Hudson/Catskill Housing Coalition presented the results of a survey conducted among current HHA tenants. There were 108 survey responses, and they indicated that the majority of respondents wanted a full rehab of Bliss Towers.
Smith commented, "We're back to square one. The survey was supposed to tell us what the people want." Wolff similarly observed, "The major question that the survey was to give us the answer to is not here."
In the end, it was decided to have a facilitated meeting, patterned on the World Cafe model, during which, as Cousin described it, "We discuss how this could actually happen, and we tell people what we know." That meeting is to take place on Wednesday, May 26, at 6:00 p.m. in the community room at Bliss Towers.
