HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N,Y. - The Hastings Board of Trustees will discuss a proposed set of green amendments to the Village Building Code Wednesday night at the Hastings Library.
"The green amendments to the building code are the product of almost three years of review and drafting by a team of resident volunteers with an interest and background in these issues," Hastings Mayor Peter Swiderski wrote in a letter to residents.
The team was headed by Sharon Kivowitz and overseen by Trustee Bruce Jennings.
"The team has spent many hundreds of hours on this effort, and it shows," Swiderski wrote. "The changes have been reviewed by the Planning Board and by the Conservation Committee and it is in line with the Village Comprehensive Plan and with the Sustainability Action Plan adopted by the Board of Trustees."
The meeting will open with a presentation on the proposed amendments, Swiderski said in his invitation.
Swiderski said the amendments make a clear statement that the village is serious about sustainability.
"They show that we know, here in Hastings, that the way we build and modify our buildings makes a statement about us, who we are, and what we value," the Mayor said.
The proposed green amendments can be found on the village website. The meeting will start at at 8 p.m.
