Planning & Zoning


Development in Hudson's commercial districts has never been easier. Recent changes to the Land Development Code have streamlined the approval process for construction in Districts 6 and 8 (Western Hudson Gateway and Industrial/Business Park). These changes have already saved businesses valuable time and money and brought more jobs to Hudson.
