The weather this weekend was close to perfect, and the week ahead promises to be an easy one. The Common Council ad hoc committee meetings scheduled for Wednesday have been canceled, but there is one meeting on Tuesday that is not to be missed: the Hudson Connects public workshop.
- On Tuesday, July 27, the Hudson Development Corporation (HDC) board meets at noon. The meeting takes place in person at 1 North Front Street. On the agenda for the meeting are updates on the sale of the Montgomery Street property and the strategic plan for the future of HDC.
- Also on Tuesday, July 27, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Arterial and Creighton Manning, the consultants for the Hudson Connects streetscape improvement project, will be conducting a public workshop at Hudson Hall. This is the first we've heard of this project for six months. Attendees will be encouraged to participate in a visual preference survey and provide input on the design of street improvements. A screen presentation will also be given to update the community on the project schedule and scope of work.
- On Wednesday, July 28, the subcommittee of the Hudson Housing Authority Board of Commissioners meets at 6:00 p.m. This will be the first meeting of the subcommittee since HHA executive director Tim Mattice announced his resignation. A revised draft of the RFQ (request for qualifications) for the redevelopment of HHA property now appears on the HHA website, but it is not clear if the RQF has been approved or released to potential developers. The meeting takes place in the Community Room of Bliss Towers and can also be accessed on Zoom.
