Tomorrow Morning with the HPC

Ever since the City of Hudson adopted its preservation ordinance back in 2003, there has been talk of the City becoming a Certified Local Government (CLG), and it seems there is finally the commitment to make it happen. The benefits of being a GLC include:
  • Ongoing, focused support from the state historic preservation office (SHPO);
  • Technical preservation assistance and legal advice;
  • Direct involvement in SHPO programs, such as identifying properties that may be eligible for listing in the State and National Registers of Historic Places;
  • Training opportunities that increase the ability of communities to protect their historic resources and integrate them into short- and long-term planning initiatives;
  • Grants designated exclusively for CLG projects; and
  • Membership in statewide and national CLG networks.
At the HPC meeting at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, Linda Mackey of SHPO, CLG representative for NYS Historic Preservation and community liaison, will be making a presentation to the HPC. 

In addition to that presentation, the HPC will be continuing its review of restoration proposals for 717 Columbia Street and 106-108 Union Street and the proposal to add an elevator shaft to 501 Union Street.
