Thank you for your input on this important effort. Commenting modules closed on February 16, 2024. The steering committee is now reviewing your input to complete the final draft plan. Check this page for project updates.


Community Open House

Over 200 residents attended the open house to provide input on the draft plan. The plan has been informed by all public input received to date, including the statistically valid community survey, online engagement, the community workshop, focus group calls, and several other in-person engagements. The steering committee is working with the planning consultant to incorporate your feedback into a final draft version of the plan. The final draft will then be reviewed by Planning Commission and City Council before the plan is adopted by City Council.

What other engagement has been completed?

This project page for online engagement has been available for more than one year. An interactive community workshop was held on June 7, 2023. 160+ residents attended to share feedback on topics like housing, key challenges and opportunities, key focus areas, and more. A community survey was mailed to 3,000 households to obtain a statistically valid response. Hudson's response rate was 20%, far higher than the typical community response rate of about 12-15%. The same survey was also available online and received an additional 652 responses for a total of more than 1,200 community survey responses. Steering committee members attended several community events to hear from more residents, resulting in an additional 220+ comments. The steering committee and planning consultant facilitated 8 focus group conversations, which captured additional insights from more than 50 community representatives in key groups such as business owners, nonprofit leaders, and youth. Participants for the focus groups were nominated by steering committee members. The steering committee has reviewed the significant public input received to date and has worked with the planning consultant to develop a draft plan framework, which was presented at the Community Open House on January 31. Watch the video at the top of this page to see the presentation from the Jan 31, 2024 open house.

The community survey results were summarized at the open house. The full results are available here:

I like the pop-up studies, but I'm wondering if this leaves out a lot of more suburban residents who don't spend much time near downtown.
