The many historic buildings in downtown Albany serve as physical reminders of what came before us and help to create a sense of culture in this neighborhood. Our Historical buildings give us a way to study the past and make sense of the communities that came before us.

A revitalized downtown will strengthen our community and improve the livability and quality of life by expanding and attracting employment, shopping and social activities.
