Sidewalks & Trails (Connectivity) Plan

connectivity
The City of Hudson Sidewalks and Trails (Connectivity) Master Plan represents the continued effort to provide safe and practical community-wide bicycle and pedestrian connectivity in the community. The  2020 Connectivity Plan update has built on the past efforts of the 2013 and 2018 plans with an expanded engagement process to refine the connectivity opportunities and priorities within the community. The final plan is expected to go to Council in February of 2021 for review. If passed, there are four projects that will take place in 2021.

    The initial community engagement is summarized here in the Resident Feedback Report. Thank you to all who participated in the initial resident engagement process
