South Bay Coalition to meet about Hudson LWRP


The South Bay Coalition will meet Saturday, February 6, at 10 a.m., to review the draft Local Waterfront Revitalization Program and tour the waterfront. The learning session begins at Basilica Industria, just down from the Amtrak station on Front St.. The South Bay Coalition seems to be an offshoot of Friends of Hudson, a local advocacy group. This is the second in a series of meetings they are holding during the public comment period to familiarize people with the issues addressed in the LWRP and the GEIS. The public comment continues to March 15. The first meeting took place on January 17, prior to the public hearing. Jamie Larson in The Register-Star has a story about the LWRP today that says, “The greatest area of contention resides in the south bay with its waterfowl, leopard frogs, phragmites and sewer system runoff. Malcontents challenge the document’s support of rehabilitating an old causeway, which bifurcates the wetland, for use as a truck route from the Holcim deep water port on the river to Route 9G.” Anyone challenging the document are “malcontents”? That’s the word you want to use, Mr. Larson? And Jamie got the date of the public comment period wrong too, it closes March 15, not March 1 as his article states.
