** * NEWS RELEASE * **

ALBANY, NY – The City of Albany is creating a citywide Historic Preservation Plan to strengthen the City’s historic preservation program. The plan will acknowledge the role historic preservation plays in shaping the City’s character, while recognizing that additional efforts are needed to identify high priority areas for preservation, reinvestment, and economic development.

The City welcomes the public to attend one (or more) of these open houses to learn more about existing historic resources, provide feedback on future historic resources, and to help the City identify critical preservation issues.
