Downtown Revitalization Initiative

With the City of Albany's successful application as part of Governor Cuomo's third-round Downtown Revitalization Initiative, a final public workshop series event to identify opportunities for Clinton Square and maximize New York State's $10 million investment was held at the Palace Theatre in March, 2019.

Throughout six working meetings of the Local Planning Committee and three public workshop events beginning in October 2018, community members provided valuable input as the LPC, consultant and market analytics teams worked through development of the City of Albany's Strategic Investment Plan. The Plan identifies and recognizes opportunities for Clinton Square.
