Dreaming of dollars in Hudson

Posted by Ralph Ranalli March 5, 2007 09:26 AM


Town officials hope to win almost $1 million in state grant money to pay for several projects, including the design of the renovation and addition of the senior center.

An application for $261,105 to pay for the design of a new senior center is included in the $988,000 the town is hoping to win from the state Department of Housing and Community Development, which gives out block grants annually, Town Planner Jennifer Burke said. A feasibility study calls for adding onto the back of the Church Street building and adding an elevator to make it handicapped accessible, a project expected to cost roughly $3.2 million.

The town is also asking for $561,500 to reconstruct the South Street parking lot and $100,000 to upgrade downtown building facades. Even if the town wins the grant money it can apply again next year for up to $800,000 in construction funds.
