Development in Hudson's commercial districts has never been easier. Recent changes to the Land Development Code have streamlined the approval process for construction in Districts 6 and 8. These changes have already saved businesses valuable time and money, and in turn have helped bring more jobs to the City.
The Land Development Code
The Land Development Code is a detailed document covering all aspects of land use within the City. Information relevant to construction in Commercial Districts 6 and 8 begins on page 104 of Chapter 1207
. For information specifically relating to the use of signs, please open the Chapter 1207 pdf above and enter 1207.17 in the search box.
Districts 5 through 10: "By Right" and "Conditional" Uses
