Community Development Director Dennis Darnold estimates that 85 to 90 percent of draft of a new city comprehensive plan is completed.
The work completed so far can be viewed on the Web site of Short Elliott Hendrickson, the engineering and planning firm assisting the city with the project.
The address for the information on the Hudson Comprehensive Plan is www.sehinc.com/online/hudson/index.htm. The city’s Web site, www.ci.hudson.wi.us, also has a link to report.
The Comprehensive Plan draft update includes sections on land use, housing, transportation, economic development, and utilities and facilities.
A discussion of potential land uses along Carmichael Road north of Interstate 94 and south of River Crest Elementary School is on the agenda of the Plan Commission’s meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10.
The property on the east side of Carmichael Road in that area, as well as some on the west side, is now in the town of Hudson. The land south of River Crest is in the town of Troy.
“That doesn’t mean we are going to extend into those areas immediately,” Darnold said in a phone call on Tuesday, “but the Plan Commission wants to look at what potential uses could go in if they become part of the city of Hudson.”
The commission also will talk about the process for amending the Comprehensive Plan.
The commission also is expected to set the dates for the final open house and a public hearing on the proposed plan.
The city’s first Comprehensive Plan was adopted in 1967 and last updated in 1993. A state statute requires the city to update its plan 2010.
