Meetings and Events in the Week Ahead

The past couple of weeks have been easy when it comes to meetings, but the break's over. The week ahead is chockablock with meetings to attend, in person or remotely.
  • On Monday, May 13, the Common Council holds a special meeting at 5:45 p.m. to authorize a revision to an earlier resolution authorizing the issuance of serial bonds to finance LED street lighting. The meeting is a hybrid, taking place in person at City Hall and on Microsoft Teams. Click here for the link to join the meeting remotely.
  • At 6:00 p.m. on Monday, May 13, the Common Council holds its monthly informal meeting. So far, there is not much on the agenda for the meeting, beyond the monthly reports from the various departments, but one thing of interest is a resolution to end the practice of offering reserved parking permits for the City parking lot at the train station. The meeting is a hybrid, taking place in person at City Hall and on Microsoft Teams. Click here for the link to join the meeting remotely.  
  • On Tuesday, May 14, the Planning Board meets at 6:30 p.m. The agenda for the meeting contains four projects that have been before the Planning Board for months, as well as two new items: a site plan application for "Mill Street Lofts" by Kearney Realty and Development Group and a presentation by Mountco Construction on the redevelopment being proposed by Hudson Housing Authority. The following description is given for Mill Street Lofts: "The proposed project includes constructing two (2) four-story buildings on the existing 3.31-acre lot. Housing a total of 70 residential units between the two buildings. The project also proposes new parking, utilities, and amenities to serve future tenants." If the Mill Street project is appearing before the Planning, it would seem the problem of the "reverter clause" has been resolved, but there has been no word either from the Hudson City School District or the City that this has happened. The Planning Board meeting is a hybrid, taking place in person at City Hall and on Zoom. Click here to join the meeting remotely.
Update: At the informal Common Council meeting tonight, it was revealed that Mountco had decided not to make a presentation to the Planning Board at this meeting. Rather they would do it next month.
  • On Wednesday, May 15, the Zoning Board of Appeals meets at 6:00 p.m. No agenda is as yet available for the meeting which takes place in person only at City Hall.
  • On Thursday, May 16, there is a public hearing on the City's Restore NY funding application for the Hudson Housing Authority's redevelopment project. The notice of the hearing on the city calendar contains this description: "The project involves the restoration and renovation of multiple properties including the demolition of Bliss Towers." In fact, there is no "restoration and renovation" of anything. The $2 million sought in Restore NY funds is only for the demolition of Bliss Towers, which cannot take place until a new building to house the 105 households currently residing in Bliss Towers has been constructed, which will not happen for at least two years. It appears the hearing will take place in person only at City Hall.
  • Also on Thursday, May 16, at 6:00, the Hudson Senior High School Student Council hosts a "Meet the Candidates" night in the Junior/Senior High School auditorium. The candidates are the five people vying for two seats on the Hudson City School District Board of Education: Micaela McClinton, Amanda Grubler, Daryl Blanks, Selha Graham, and Matthew Mackerer. The event will be livestreamed on the HCSD YouTube page.
  • On Saturday, May 18, Christ Church Episcopal holds its annual Spring-A-Fair Indoor Tag Sale. The event takes place from 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 431 Union Street.
