Civil Rights Institute should be open soon

Albany - Back in October, a temporary certificate of occupancy was granted to the Institute for grand opening events.

The city hasn't issued an official certificate because the parking lot, required by city ordinance, is about three weeks away from completion. 

"We didn't go over there and shut this place down. It's a construction project that's being managed by ATI that's simply not been completed," said City Manager Alfred Lott.

An alley behind the Civil Rights Institute is also being paved. Lott says only the parking lot must be completed to receive the certificate of occupancy, and then they can open up for good.
