began his crusade to lower the speed limit in Hudson from 30 mph to 25 mph. Because during much of that time there was no Legal Committee, Council president Tom DePietro having abolished all standing committees at the beginning of 2021, it was difficult to follow the progress of this effort. At one point, it was hoped the lower speed limit could be imposed on all the streets of Hudson, including those that are used as truck routes, but that was not to be.
Tonight, the Council will be voting to enact a law that imposes a 25 mph speed limit on just two streets in Hudson: Glenwood Boulevard, from Fairview Avenue to the point at which it becomes Sixth Street; and Union Street, from Worth Avenue to South Front Street. The language of the law indicates: "Initially this law will apply only to Glenwood Boulevard and Union Street but can be amended from time to time by the Common Council to add additional streets."
