A snow parking ban is in effect beginning Tuesday, January 24, 2023, starting at 10:00 p.m. and lasting until further notice due to an impending multi-day winter storm possibly lasting through the upcoming weekend. Thank you for your cooperation!
As we have quite a few citizens who walk for exercise or are just simply walking their pet, I have a few reminders that will keep everyone safe and respectful.
If you are walking at night, wear reflective clothing and carry a lighted flashlight or other illuminated device.
If there is a sidewalk available, you should utilize the sidewalk and avoid walking in the street. State law prohibits pedestrians from walking in the roadway when a sidewalk is available.
If no sidewalk is available, walk as close as possible to the edge of the roadway facing oncoming traffic.
Please avoid walking on people's lawns and avoid cutting through people's backyards. Be respectful of other people's property.
Thank you and be safe while enjoying your walk in our village.

The Official Hudson Village Plan – Phase II plan has been posted online under City Services > Document Library. The plan is also posted below for your convenience.
Official Hudson Village Plan – Phase II
The Planning Commission has held multiple meetings and public forums to solicit the priorities that need to be addressed in the official Hudson Plan. After collecting a list of suggestions, the Commission held multiple sessions to discuss these in detail and create a list for a five year plan. This list is what we believe is the most important work that needs to be completed, or well on the way to being completed, in the next five years.
It is critical to begin work on this plan immediately. There need to be regular reviews (i.e. monthly village board meetings) to ensure continued progress towards completion of this plan. This list of projects allows for the village board to budget for this work.
As these projects are initiated, research needs to be completed to determine if there are grants available; specifically, if there are governmental or legal requirements for these projects, or if we have to meet specific regulations.
Official Plan projects and details:
-Determine issues (based on current issues and past knowledge)
-Create plan to resolve these issues
-Improved drainage will potentially attract new business and new residents
3.Maintain & Update current infrastructure
-Sidewalk from West Street to the new Dollar General location
Due to the recent federal and state government announcements, the Hudson Garage sale weekend will be postponed or delayed. A decision will be made at a later time whether to set another date later this year, or cancel this year altogether. Thanks for your understanding.
