In this week's show:
- An outdoor open house event was held on October 26th at the waterfront to get input on climate adaptive concepts that the City of Kingston’s been working on. It was a self-guided walking or bicycling tour with exhibit stops staffed by the project design teams; free boat tours to the Lighthouse; and trolley rides to and from Kingston Point. Information regarding the projects and the tours were available throughout the day. The City’s Director of Grants Management Kristen Wilson tell us about next steps. The presentation boards and surveys are available online and will be available at the Kingston Library. Feedback is being accepted through November 30th.
- Tuesday was election day! We go over the results with a focus on voter participation. See the election results here. Watch Radio Kingston's election night coverage with full interviews and speeches from the election watch parties on Facebook.
- Around 2p today, I’ll host a round table discussion with three participants in last weekend’s Surviving the Future event about ideas of failure, success, and feedback when trying new systems and structures. Scott Baber is the creator of Catskill Common Kitchen, Barbara Mansfield is the Chair of the Board of Directors of the Hudson Valley Foundation for Youth Health, and Tim Weidemann is the Director of Innovation for Ulster County.
