On Thursday, October 20, Hudson received an Excellence in Economic Development Marketing Award in the Small Community category from the Ohio Economic Development Association (OEDA) for the City’s Velocity Broadband Awareness Campaign. Velocity Broadband, Hudson’s high-speed, all-fiber Internet service, was the City’s answer to the needs of Hudson businesses who were struggling with the quality of Internet available to them. It was also created to become a valuable economic development retention and attraction tool.
The award was accepted at the OEDA Annual Summit by Jim Stifler, Hudson Economic Development Director.
Hudson also received an Honorable Mention in the same category for the City of Hudson 2014 Year in Review publication.
The OEDA’s annual Excellence Awards program recognizes the achievements of individuals and organizations in Ohio in the areas of economic and workforce development.
