Earlier this year, the City formed a Parking Committee made up of Hudson merchants, the Hudson Chamber of Commerce, and City staff to investigate ways to add more parking closer to the downtown stores and restaurants. Additional parking would make it easier for visitors to find parking and park closer to where they want to shop or eat, especially for quick, convenient shopping trips or when picking up take-out meals.
After analyzing the downtown traffic flow, the City and the Parking Committee found that the most effective and efficient way to add parking to Downtown Hudson is to temporarily change Village Way and Park Lane from two-way to one-way between Library Street and First Street. This change would allow the City to add approximately 20 angled parking spaces around the perimeter of the First & Main Green to better serve the downtown area.
The number of parking spaces would increase from 50 spaces to 69 spaces. One additional Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) parking space would also be added to the three existing ADA spaces. If approved by City Council, these changes would be put into effect sometime in September of 2020.
We want to hear from you! The City of Hudson would like feedback from residents and businesses about the proposed changes to downtown traffic and parking. Feedback can be submitted by taking a short survey at www.hudson.oh.us/DowntownParkingSurvey. Responses will be accepted through Friday, July 24, 2020.
