Testa Companies and the City continue to study compatible scale with surrounding development. Initial design considerations included three and four-story buildings. Based on further site analysis and the public feedback received, the scale has been reduced to two and three-story buildings. Specific attention will be paid to the architectural design and massing at the perimeter of the site adjacent to Owen Brown Street and the Villas of Hudson to ensure compatible scale and transition to existing residences.

• Promote a variety of housing and dwelling unit types, tenures, and densities. • Encourage housing development that provides diverse choices of style and cost. • Focus the development of higher density or multi-family units within the greater downtown area.
Single-family detached housing is more appropriately located in neighborhoods outside of the downtown. The greater number of units the proposed housing allows will enhance the synergy of the downtown neighborhood.
The development team is researching local market and regional trends to confirm the financial viability of the concept plan. The financial viability will be verified as part of the development agreement process between the City and Testa Companies.
As the traffic models are prepared in the coming months, determinations can be made on the anticipated amount of traffic utilizing the Owen Brown St. Railroad underpass and the cost-benefit analysis of various improvements. Improvements to the underpass will require significant time and cost due the need to keep the rail line operational at all times. The City has begun communications with Norfolk Southern Railroad to expedite these upcoming discussions when the traffic studies are complete.
To reduce potential through traffic on Owen Brown Street, the development will establish a new street grid and widened green boulevard on Owen Brown St., west of Morse Road. The proposed street grid will accommodate through traffic within site, rather than forcing traffic flow to the perimeter of the site. Additionally, the proposed multipurpose trail crossing on the east side of Morse Road will be designed with a raised surface, narrowed width, and additional treatments to ease potential through traffic.
The City has completed extensive Phase I and Phase II environmental assessments of the project site. Only isolated amounts of soil and asbestos have been identified for removal from the property due the decades long light industrial activities on the site. This work will be completed as part of the demolition activities for the site in late 2017.

2) Hudson also requires a separate check, which can be done online using the Deer Check Form or by completing the form enclosed in the deer hunting permit packet and returning it to the Hudson Police Station. You also may check a deer by phone (330) 342-1800. The separate check allows Hudson officials the ability to gauge the efficacy of the deer management program, as the State of Ohio only breaks down deer harvest by county, not by municipality.
