ABOUT THE DEVELOPMENT REVIEW PROCESS

All development projects proposed in Albany must comply with the City's Unified Sustainable Development Ordinance (USDO).  The USDO, in coordination with the Albany 2030 Comprehensive Plan, includes zoning code updates and a streamlined, user-friendly process that aim to secure successful (re)development in the City.

The BZA holds public hearings to decide appeals or interpret provisions of the USDO, that impact applicants requesting a change of use or other relief from USDO permitted regulations.
