Hudson Comprehensive Plan
The City of Hudson is an affluent municipality located in Northeastern Ohio in close proximity to both Akron and Cleveland. Houseal Lavigne Associates was engaged by the city to prepare a new comprehensive plan while concurrently developing a plan for the expansion of their very successful Downtown. The planning process included working with separate Comprehensive Plan and Downtown Plan steering committees in addition to extensive community outreach. A major complexity in the Downtown Plan involved identifying uses had to remain on the 35 acre site as well as those that had to or should be relocated, including a public works and school bus facility. The final plan includes an assessment of development potential, build out scenarios, a 3D model, and the creation of several different concept plans. Once adopted in December 2015, the plan will be used to solicit developers to the site.
