City residents are getting one more chance to weigh in on how to spend a $10 million grant for Uptown Kingston before state officials make the final call on how the money will be spent.
About two dozen people braved a cold, drizzly Presidents Day to express support for President Donald J. Trump and condemn Kingston’s status as a “sanctuary city” at a rally in the Town of Ulster.
If approved, Ulster would join New York City and 10 upstate counties that have boosted the legal age for tobacco sales from 18 to 21.
The city is poised to spend $2.3 million to replace underground infrastructure, in conjunction with the state project to install a roundabout at an Uptown Kingston intersection.
Mayor Steve Noble is hoping the wave of interest and investment in Kingston will carry with it the redevelopment of a vacant lot in the heart of the Broadway corridor.
In his own state of the city address Tuesday evening, Common Council Majority Leader Rennie Scott-Childress (D-Ward 3) offered up a ringing defense of Mayor Steve Noble’s progressive “One Kingston” agenda and called on Kingstonians to embrace local government as a force for positive change and economic growth.
Those hoping to unseat incumbent congressman John Faso poured millions into the campaign coffers in the last few months, according to federal data.
‘If kids know what’s expected of them and what to expect from us, it helps diffuse some of the anxiety they’re feeling.’
“Were the tariffs necessary to help our business? No, but that’s not to say that it hasn’t sparked more interest in American-made products, and that’s a good thing for us.”
Plans call for Central Hudson to replace a circa-1930’s underground natural gas regulator located underground with an above-ground apparatus in a vacant lot. Neighbors fear it will cause pollution and be an eyesore.
