Museum move is moved up on calendar

August 13, 2007

Albany --  An historic building in Downtown Albany should have a new tenant sooner than originally planned.  

With about three and a half million dollars of sales tax money the Albany Museum of Art will relocate to the Holman Mule Barn on Broad Avenue.

Originally the art museum was scheduled to relocate beginning in 2009, but plans have been stepped up and the project can get underway this year.  

"It will upgrade, accelerate the years that we will be funding the project to 2007, 2008 and 2009," says County Administrator Richard Crowdis.

Right now, an architect is being hired to look at the property. Then plans will be submitted to the historical preservation board so the relocation can move forward.
