Albany- A lot of work downtown is finished or well underway, but Albany Tomorrow hopes to get more money for other plans.

The ATI board must choose by next Tuesday which projects are most important.

They hoped for $27 million to finish the Greenway Trail and Bridge House Renovation, expand the civil rights museum and add a children's science discovery center to Thronateeska.

"These are projects that the Heritage on the Flint master planning team, when it wrote the master plan in 1996 said were important to the successful revitalization of downtown," said Tommy Chapmon president and CEO of ATI.

A sales tax extension would bring in more than 100-million dollars... but there are more than 250-million in project requests.
