Renovation of Hudson City Hall to begin in February

Jan 30, 2023 12:30 am
Jammel Cutler is reporting for Columbia-Greene Media Hudson City Hall is set to undergo needed renovations, according to a resolution recently adopted by the Common Council. The resolution authorized the mayor to enter into a contract with VMJR Companies of Glens Falls to complete the alterations required to bring the historic former bank building into compliance with the American with Disabilities Act. The cost of the project is $669,500, and the resolution authorizes expenditure of $337,933 from the general fund. Construction is expected to begin in February and the work will be completed in three or four months. Changes to the building’s facade include removing the marble steps that lead to the side door of the building and dropping the door to sidewalk level. The existing door will continue to be used and the marble plinths and pilasters on either side of the doorway will remain unchanged. “The improvements will make access to the second floor a lot easier for folks,” said Mayor Kamal Johnson. “I’m happy that we’re finally getting to this point as a city.” The renovations will make the building more accessible, and the general environment is going to be more inviting for everyone, he said. VMJR has completed similar projects at locations throughout upstate New York — at the University at Albany, Siena College, the State Education building and Middleburgh Central School. In Hudson, the company successfully completed the St.Paul’s/St. Mary’s Church historical restoration. Read more at HudsonValley360 [dot] com.
