Update on Possible Historic District Expansion in Hudson

The City of Hudson is considering expanding the City’s Historic District to include Elm Street, Roslyn Avenue, and East Streetsboro Street. The City first looked into the Historic District Expansion when a group of 25 residents submitted a petition in 2015 requesting the City consider adding Elm Street and Roslyn Avenue to the current Historic District.

Since then, the City has worked with the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) to make sure the areas requested would be eligible. SHPO found that Elm and Roslyn would be great candidates for inclusion in the Historic District, with the addition of E. Streetsboro Street. The City held a neighborhood meeting and administered an online survey for the 86 property owners in the proposed expansion area to gain feedback on if they would like to add their neighborhoods to the Historic District.

Why Consider Expanding the Historic District?

Historic Districts often:

  • Have increased levels of home ownership and longer durations of residency.
  • See greater economic stability and higher property values.
  • Studies specific to Hudson show properties within the Historic District appreciate at a higher percentage.

Next Steps:

Based on a discussion with City Council on March 3, 2020, staff had planned to directly reach out to each property owner within the proposed expansion area to get a formal response as many did not respond to the survey.

That process was temporarily put on hold when COVID-19 began impacting the City in mid-March. Staff determined that door-to-door contact would not be feasible during the pandemic closures. Additionally, as residents were dealing with the impacts of COVID-19, staff felt it was not the appropriate time to attempt mail or phone communications. Staff is set to come back to Council in September 2020 with an update after re-engaging with the 86 residents mid-July through August via mail, phone, and in person (if allowed by Summit County Public Health) to obtain a response from each property owner.
