Danskammer Power Plant Debate - City Council Workshop Meeting
Day:
Monday, July 29, 2019
Time: 7 pm
Location: Beacon City Hall, 1 Municipal Plaza, Beacon, NY (on the way to the train station)
Information >
There are talks of building and operating a new gas-fired power plant with a potential generating capacity of 525-575 megawatts on the shores of the Hudson River in the Town of Newburgh. The plant will use fracked gas, despite New York State having banned fracking "to protect our health and protect the climate," according to the City of Beacon's Resolution to Comment on the decision. Also in that draft resolution, the City of Beacon states that fracked gas is "especially dangerous to air and water quality of the communities outside of New York from which it is extracted, and the City of Beacon does not seek increased harms on any community, including outside of New York State."

Beacon's City Council will discuss their official position on the building of this power plant at this Monday's Workshop meeting after hearing from the developers and groups in opposition, including Scenic Hudson and Food and Water Watch. Beacon's Conservation Advisory Committee has already spoken out against the proposed building of the plant. This discussion is open to the public to sit in and listen, but members of the public are not able to speak at a Workshop. The public can speak in a regular City Council meeting, which happens the week after the Workshop.

Happening This Weekend - 7/19/2019

So. Hot. But beautiful! Here's your Adventure Day Trip in Beacon: Bike, walk or drive down to the River Pool at Beacon. It's a circle of benches with a net bottom - set right in the Hudson. Great for kids and adults who want to cool off when down at Pete and Toshi Seeger Riverfront Park. The pool's biggest fundraiser that keeps it free and staffed with lifeguards is this weekend, so see below in our Marathons section for details. Meanwhile, if you're too hot, or see someone who is overheating, take you or them to one of Beacon's cooling centers. Days and times are here.

In Darryl's Clothing Boutique now is the line, Petit Pois, by Vivian G, an American designer with a European flair who produces her collection in the USA. She is known for her eclectic mix of prints and patterns in lightweight mesh fabrics that are unique to her designs. While the fabrics are part of her signature, they are the secret to packing for travel, as they take up minimal space when packed for a weekend getaway or vacation, and they don't wrinkle!

Happening This Weekend - 5/24/2019

Wishing you the best Memorial Day Weekend, and a sunlit slide into summer! Will you be wearing white pants? Darryl's can certainly give you more colorful options, as can many stores on Main Street in A Little Beacon Blog's Shopping Guide. Stop into their neighbor, Knot Too Shabby, to get gorgeous furniture paint and stencils as you start a new summer project. Owner Caryn is an amazing furniture painter and can give you tips! And here's one more hot tip: To-go wine sippy cups (for lack of a better word) are at Beacon Natural right now, located in the middle of Main Street near the post office. Get your drink in a stemless glass, but in a to-go cup with lid!

See below for ideas on things to do!

Tin Shingle
Did you ever wonder why or how someone got featured in a magazine or newspaper? Did your competition, or even a business or person who you admire, "get good ink" (as the term goes when something is written about in a publication)? Was that just something wonderful and lucky that happened to them? Most likely not. They most likely "pitched" the media outlet with a good angle or story idea. Tin Shingle teachers business owners, artists and makers how to do this. And can teach you too.
