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.)

They've had them in Arizona for years. When I lived there, I hated the idea and hated it even more when I was caught, twice. There's something endlessly creepy about being mailed a photo-ticket of yourself driving. BUT...
