Hudson nears naming funding winners

Mar 03, 2018 12:20 am

Amanda Purcell reports in Columbia-Greene Media that Hudson's Downtown Revitalization Initiative did not vote on which projects will get a share of the state's $10 million funding at its final meeting March 1 in the John L. Edwards school cafeteria. Instead, committee members will submit their votes individually to Stantec, the project consultant, by March 5. In all, 22 projects valued at $56,066,938, with $14,377,610 requested in state funds, are in the running. Second Ward Supervisor Linda Mussmann complained that three projects from The Galvan Foundation were up for funding, when the developer is sitting on many buildings in Hudson without doing anything with them. “I think the Galvan situation is not compatible with the DRI project,” Mussmann said. “We are under a tremendous amount of stress in this community and we’re losing housing stock rapidly and it seems to be a slap in the face to include this in the DRI. We have kids who need a skate park and other projects that got pushed out.” Read the full story at HudsonValley360.com.
