The current draft Waterfront plan for Hudson reflects neither the public input received, nor the 2005 instructions from the Secretary of State for rezoning this magnificent public resource. We call upon the City of Hudson and State of New York to:
(1) extend the public comment period; (2) revise the plan in a more forward-looking direction to unlock the full recreational, habitat, and commercial potential of this regional treasure; and (3) remove any possibility of further impairment of these resources by heavy industrial activity, nuisances and blight.
The wetlands of South Bay should not be further industrialized; and the public's access to the Hudson River should not be compromised by harsh, incompatible neighboring activities. Future generations will thank those citizens and officials who ensure that this plan is one based in long-term benefits for the many, not in the narrow, short-term concerns of a single corporation.
