The federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has given the Cohoes Housing Authority the green light to sell the Saratoga Sites housing complex next to the Norlite hazardous waste incinerator to the city, in order to relocate its residents and demolish it. This is one of the first such actions by HUD in the country. Joe Ritchie of Lights Out Norlite provides an update. With Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
