Complete Streets Policy & Design Manual

Complete streets are streets designed for everyone of all ages and abilities... pedestrians, bicycles, public transit and other onstreet vehicles.  Albany 2030 sees complete streets as a way to provide mobility options, in a way that is safer and more comfortable, no matter how you travel around the City.  Complete streets designs encourage us to be healthy, connects us to our desired destinations, benefits our local economy, and creates safe and walkable neighborhoods. Albany's Common Council passed complete streets legislation in 2013, and we are preparing to establish policy and design guidelines for future projects.  Read more...

Albany 2030 Plan Adopted!

In April 2012 the City of Albany Common Council voted unanimously to adopt the Albany 2030 Plan. This momentous vote officially established the first Comprehensive Plan in the City's 400-year history. Albany 2030 will greatly improve local quality of life for generations to come. In a tremendous demonstration of collaboration, thousands of community stakeholders from diverse backgrounds and neighborhoods came together to build consensus about their local priorities.

Albany 2030 built a framework for the City’s future based on extensive research and community input. This sustainable approach will guide local (re)development and (re)investment in a manner that meets the needs of residents, businesses and stakeholders while maintaining and elevating the City’s character, quality of life, and environmental and fiscal health.
