HUDSON — The Planning Commission is scheduled to vote Monday on the majority of the residential portion of the Downtown Phase II project.

The meeting is set to start at 7:30 p.m. in Town Hall, 27 E. Main St..

After reviewing the plan for three hours on Aug. 12, the commission decided to delay action until its next meeting. Commission members discussed concerns about the number of parking spaces and how traffic flow will be handled on Owen Brown Street.

Testa Companies is the developer for the project.

The commission OK’d a preliminary plan with 143 residential units in July 2018. The final plan has 101 units, with single family detached and attached homes, townhomes and condominiums. The commission is now reviewing a plan to build 81 units north of Owen Brown Street. Testa will later submit a proposal for 20 condominiums north of Owen Brown and then a third application for the office/retail portion south of Owen Brown.

The size of the project was reduced in response to residents’ and council members’ feedback that was collected after nearly 52 percent of people voting in a May 7 advisory election opposed the project.

If the commission approves the plan, it would then go to City Council for its approval.
