A series of community events organized by local urban planners, architects, and activists in Hudson, New York to inspire creative conversations about our shared future.
WHO ARE THE STREETS FOR?
Saturday, AUGUST 17
Hudson Area Library
Like most cities in America, Hudson is designed for cars and trucks - not for people. This is changing. People are expecting streets to do more than just move cars. This event looks at how redesigning streets makes cities safer and more livable.
Mike Lydon, Founder of Street Plans Collaborative and author of “Tactical Urbanism: Short Term Action, Long-Term Change”
Emily Flynn, Director of Health & Wellness for the City of Kingston, New York
Can we talk about housing?
The forces of gentrification are at work in Hudson, and the city is at risk of losing a core aspect of its identity. This event looks at the challenges and opportunities in quality housing for citizens at all income levels.
