Board of Selectmen Meeting

Monday, February 24th, 2020

7pm, Town Hall

The Hudson Cultural Alliance is a Hudson-based non-profit built to enrich Hudson’s cultural economy. Our primary objective is the adaptive reuse of the Hudson Armory as a regional community arts center.

We are an all-volunteer organization funded by our board of directors and a small group of generous donors. We are actively fundraising for the acquisition and rehabilitation of the Armory — our goal is to drive private investment in Hudson’s thriving downtown.

How We Get There

The State has offered a Right of First Refusal to the Town of Hudson. The Town doesn’t want it for its own use, but it may nominate a local non-profit to pursue “acquisition” and use of the Armory. Various elected officials and Town employees have voiced support for the HCA’s pursuit of this project with the State. To keep this project moving forward, we need this support to be formalized. In short — we need the Town, via a vote by the Board of Selectmen, to help us get in the game.
