The purpose of the Mayor’s Housing Task Force is to:
1. Understand Hudson’s current housing needs via review past and current professionally prepared reports as well as through studying best practices & successful strategies for housing development.
2. Develop near- mid-and long-term actionable solutions e.g. municipal resolutions, financing sources, public-private partnerships with a timeline that will work in tandem with the DRI in the near term.
3. Build community consensus for solutions via ongoing, transparent communication and inclusive outreach.
