Riverfront District hearing to be scheduled

July 17, 2007

Albany - Albany city commissioners want to give you time to weigh in on a new entertainment district, before approving the zoning changes.

The Riverfront District would encompass a large area of downtown, across both sides of the river. It would require certain façade improvements, possibly change some streets to one way only and of course, do away with the 1,000 foot rule between bars. The commission plans to hold a public hearing within the next 30 days and vote on implementing the new zone next month.
