Meetings of Interest in the Week Ahead

This is our final week of Daylight Saving Time. Next weekend, we experience the annual depressing plunge into early darkness as we fall back and Standard Time returns in the early hours of Sunday morning. Before that happens, here are the meetings scheduled for this week.
  • On Monday, November 1, the Tourism Board meets at 7:00 p.m. A topic of discussion may well be the decision by the Board of Estimate and Apportionment (BEA) to reduce the Tourism Board's 2022 budget from the requested $160,000 to $30,000. Click here to join the Zoom meeting.
  • Tuesday, November 2, is Election Day. The polls are open from 6 a.m. until 9 p.m. Voters in the First, Second, and Third wards vote at St. Mary's Academy, 301 Allen Street; Fourth Ward voters vote at the County Office Building, 401 State Street; Fifth Ward voters vote at the Central Fire Station, 77 North Seventh Street.    
  • Also on Tuesday, November 2, the Conservation Advisory Council meets at 6:00 p.m. It is not clear if this meeting is to be an in-person meeting or if it will take place on Zoom. So far, no Zoom link has been provided.
  • On Wednesday, November 3, the Hudson Industrial Development Agency (IDA) meets at 1:00 p.m. The proposal for the adaptive reuse of the Pocketbook Factory will no doubt be a topic of discussion. At its October 20 meeting, it seemed the IDA was ready to schedule a public hearing on the project, but that has not happened. Click here to join the Zoom meeting.
  • On Thursday, November 4, Mayor Kamal Johnson holds a public hearing on the proposed local law reducing the speed limit on Glenwood Boulevard and Union Street from 30 mph to 25 mph. The public hearing takes place at 4:00 p.m. The link to the Zoom meeting will be published on the City of Hudson website prior to the meeting.  
  • It is worth noting that the Planning Board had scheduled and then canceled a special meeting to take place at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 4. That meeting was to take up the issue of Colarusso and its applications for conditional use permits. Gossips has been informed that Colarusso will now be part of the agenda for the Planning Board's regular meeting, which will take place on Tuesday, November 9, at 6:00 p.m.
  • On Friday, November 5, the Historic Preservation Commission holds its first meeting of two meetings for the month at 10:00 a.m. No agenda is available for the meeting, but HPC meetings are rarely without interest. Click here to join the Zoom meeting.
