Albany   --  Folks got a chance to learn more about the future of the city Wednesday. The "All Together Albany" Town Meeting was held at Albany State University.     

Community leaders reviewed six-month study developed by Market Street. They took into account current economic conditions, the declining job market, and the housing market and came up with a plan for Albany to attract business.            

Chamber of Commerce leaders say the city must first deal with its weaknesses.

"We'd like to be stronger in education, we'd like to have better transportation access, we'd like to have more, more, more, better, faster, that's what it's about," said Albany Chamber of Commerce President Tim Martin.     

They also said development can't happen in a vacuum. It takes a relationship between government, schools, businesses, and the community to happen.
