Setting the City on a path to achieve Albany 2030 requires strategic planning and action. Through public consensus, eight Sustainability Building Blocks  were generated to help define the interrelationships amongst priorities listed in Albany 2030 and to help guide their implementation as we work to reach our desired future.

   Albany 2030 System: INSTITUTIONS

As the State Capital, Albany is home to multiple layers of governmental bodies (Federal, State, County, City), research and education institutions, hospitals and health care facilities, authorities and State-wide non-profits.

These Institutions all impact the City of Albany in unique ways.  From City landscape and architecture--as seen by the gothic SUNY Administration Headquarters or the Corinthian columns of the State Education Building--to the City’s culture and quality of life of the community.

In addition to being major employers and stakeholders, Albany’s Institutions play a key role in shaping the City’s economy, land use patterns and design of infrastructure.

Key components within Albany 2030 that function to define Institutions and that interrelate with other Sustainability Building Blocks include....

  • Relationships & Patnerships
  • Facilities & Projects
  • Fiscal Impacts
