Housing & Neighborhoods

Setting the City on a path to achieve Albany 2030 requires strategic planning and action. Through public consensus, eight Sustainability Building Blocks  were generated to help define the interrelationships amongst priorities listed in Albany 2030 and to help guide their implementation as we work to reach our desired future.

   Albany 2030 System: HOUSING & NEIGHBORHOODS

Creating safe, livable, mixed-use, and mixed-income neighborhoods emerged from the Albany 2030 visioning process as the top community priority. The physical character of Albany's neighborhoods, and a critical characteristic for the well-being of residents, is largely defined by housing stock.

Housing and Neighborhoods contributes to the City’s walkable, historic urban fabric and the adaptability to contemporary lifestyles and market demand. Moreover, Albany sets to maintain distinct, safe, quality neighborhoods that preserve and enhance the natural beauty, historic/architectural character, and cultural diversity of Albany.

The quality and accessibility of neighborhood services impacts the desirability and health of a neighborhood. Neighborhood services include commercial centers, transit access, schools, parks and recreation, health and social services, libraries and public safety, to name a few.

Key components within Albany 2030 that function to define Housing & Neighborhoods and that interrelate with other Sustainability Building Blocks include....

  • Housing Diversity & Choice
  • Neighborhood Identity
  • Neighborhood Services
