Sidewalks are a perennial topic of discussion in Hudson. On Monday, July 12, Mayor Kamal Johnson will be holding a public hearing on a proposed law requiring repairs to sidewalks to conform to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. The Common Council has been working for years to draft a law to ensure the replacement, uniformity, and ongoing repair of the sidewalks throughout the city.
Yesterday, I came upon an article in Strong Towns that gets to the heart of the issue of sidewalks and helps explain why some neighborhoods in Hudson have no sidewalks and where they do exist they are the responsibility of the property owner: "Doing the Math on Sidewalks." It is a short but interesting read.
