 Albany  -- Since March of 2005, the city has been working with the Department of Transportation to build gateways at the main routes into Albany. All that stands in the way of construction beginning is receiving permits for the go-ahead.

Keep Albany Beautiful Director Judy Bowles says how the city looks matters, especially to businesses that are considering relocating.

"How we look as a community is everything. It welcomes people in. It lets them know that we have pride in our community and that we are glad they are here."

Nearly $400,000 in grant money will pay for most of the project. Bowles has commissioners that $238,000, left over from last year will remain available in community improvement.
