Two-hour parking enforcement begins Jan. 1

Hudson has installed two-hour parking signs in the First & Main and North Main Street areas. The signs have been in place for a few months to allow customers to learn where they are located. Enforcement begins Jan. 1, 2017.

The signs were installed after requests from the Hudson merchants for the city to re-evaluate the downtown parking codes, implement two-hour parking in some areas and increase enforcement. The goal is to encourage parking turnover to help ensure customers have access to parking spots, making it easier to access downtown stores during peak hours.

Longer-term parking is still available in the parking terrace, in the parking lot on Village Way, and more. To view a map of the parking areas and parking limits downtown Hudson, go to hudson.oh.us.
