Hudson, NY is changing. Fewer decisions for the community's future are being made behind closed doors. But the Hudson Development Corporation, which can make crucial decisions about the city, has an unelected board for which there is no oversight and little transparency. It is an undemocratic entity.

It continues to hold its monthly meetings on the fourth Tuesday at noon, despite the community's repeated requests to change the meetings to the early evening, when more citizens can participate. 

Development corporations were originally formed because citizens felt that local governments weren't being responsive enough to their needs. Now it's the development corporations that, across the country, are being disbanded for the very same reasons

The HDC is not beholden to shareholders. The HDC is beholden to the community. The community asks the HDC to change the meeting time.
