The Hudson Shared Summer Streets initiative was officially unveiled yesterday during a presentation conducted by Hudson Hall’s General Manager Sage Carter and Future Hudson’s Peter Spear during the Reimagine Hudson ‘Cultural Taskforce’ call.
The program is designed to maintain social distancing standards by moving shoppers and diners outside of Hudson’s storefronts and restaurants and onto semi- or fully-closed designated city streets. The program may launch as early as Father’s Day weekend later this month. The first details are available on the City of Hudson website. The City is also conducting a virtual town hall on the initiative tomorrow, Thursday, June 11 at 4pm. The public can submit questions or comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
The initiative is being undertaken in conjunction with Hudson’s Department of Public Works, and Police and Fire Departments, and has the fiscal backing of Columbia Economic Development Corp. and the Spark of Hudson.
