Corning Preserve Master Plan
The Corning Preserve Master Plan, a waterfront development strategy included in Albany 2030, was released for review, Tuesday, January 28, 2014 at Albany City Hall. Major improvements that have people excited include designs for better access to the Corning Preserve and Hudson River- a significant challenge that has been a topic of discussion for years. New opportunities are expected for mass transit, bikers, pedestrians and boaters... design concepts include more docking and multiple launch areas for the boating community, commercial amenities and performance and entertainment upgrades at Jennings Landing, to name a few.
This project is being funded through the NYS Department of State, and builds on the LWRP and other past initiatives that balance improving and protecting Albany's waterfront, while addressing major barriers so better to promote it as a major destination.
Albany 2030 Plan Adopted!
On Monday, April 2, 2012 the City of Albany Common Council voted unanimously to adopt the Albany 2030 Plan. This momentous vote officially establishes 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.
