Hooray to the Albany Bicycling Coalition for organizing this year's Expo. They do a marvelous job.This is a good event to learn about all the great bike projects and policy underway in Albany (there's a TON) and a hearty gaggle of cycling advocacy groups will be present to share all the good work they are engaged in. Oh, and the Livingston Avenue Bridge Coalition, too :-)

The City should take a more proactive approach based on neighborhood consensus. A prescriptive design guideline with great clarity could save lots of graves for aspiring developers and other stakeholders. The City has to be clear upfront on conditions to be met such as overall allowed building volume, easy river connection, parking, pedestrian oriented ground floor usage and etc. It not seems reasonable to expect commercial developers to build something on their own initiative to both maximize ROI and please all city residents.
