Hudson, the oldest city in America, is undergoing a transformation from an aging industrial river town into the choice visitor destination in the Hudson Valley. Hundreds of shops, restaurants, and hotels line the historic streets. Hudson initiated a parking improvement study to address the critical parking deficit in the landlocked city. A lack of long-term, short-term, daily, and hourly parking was adversely impacting the ability of residents and visitors to access the central business district, recreation sites, public service centers, and other important destinations.
Fishbeck conducted a study which analyzed the current conditions and considered how to develop safer, more accessible parking throughout the City. The final plan recommendations addressed the parking shortage and built a framework for effective management and flexibility into the future. Incorporating mobility options with increased utilization of all parking, public, and private, Hudson can adapt and grow while maintaining the character of the historic city.
