Future of the Albany waterfront

albany waterfront sunsetThe city of Albany is working to update its Local Waterfront Revitalization Program and has a public presentation and discussion event lined up for Tuesday (December 11) at the main branch of the Albany Public Library. "We want to know what you think are the major issues for the Hudson River Waterfront and what projects you would like to see happen." Open house at 5:30 pm, presentation at 6:15 pm. The waterfront often gets mentioned when people talk about things they'd like to see change, so this might be opportunity to express that desire more formally. (Background on the LWRP.)

Do something with that place across the river.

Stop dumping sewage in the river.

Don't name your local sports franchises after water loving rats.

Get one of those dunking booths, suspend it over the river and put Jennings in it. Let people loose on that thing, charge $100 a try, and solve any budget issues the city has (do this before you stop dumping the sewage in the river)

Can't make it tonight, but if anyone wants to take up my fight...

A drinking fountain. Tons of people run, bike and walk there everyday. The city could even score bonus points by installing one that has a faucet near the bottom so dogs can also get water.

... as somebody who is interested in developing downtown and possibly starting a business there, but isn't Columbia development, what message do those tax breaks send to me? The smaller players who will do the type of infill, mixed use development that we really need get discouraged when they see that only the big guys get any support from the city and that the playing field is tilted against them ...
