Hudson reuse study delayed

Email

Those waiting to hear the results of a reuse study on the old Hudson Manufacturing property will have to wait just a little bit longer.

The study, originally scheduled to be released around Sept. 1, has been delayed about a month, said Community Development Director John Hinzman. The reason for the delay is no surprise. Since the reuse study contract is through the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the state shutdown in July meant the study was put on hold as well. The new schedule puts the release date sometime in early October, Hinzman said.

What happens at that point has yet to be decided.

"The one thing I'm certain of is we'll be having a public meeting," Hinzman said.

The meeting will present to the public what the study has turned up, including the condition of the building, feasibility for rehabilitation and desirability of rehabilitation, among others.

Once completed, the Hastings Economic Development and Redevelopment Authority will use the information to help in the decision of what to do with the property. Hinzman described the study as "an important tool that we will need to make important decisions for Hudson."
