What Happens Next?


The Public Review Draft of the Albany General Plan will be released on November 24, 2015. A Draft Environmental Impact Report will be released concurrently. Dates for City Council Study Sessions, Planning and Zoning Commission hearings, and City Council hearings will be announced following the release date. Paper copies of the Draft documents will be available at City Hall and the Albany Public Library starting November 24. Electronic copies will be posted to this website and will be downloadable. Files will be posted by chapter for ease of downloading. Please check back soon for more information.  The document will remain a Public Review Draft until it is adopted by the City Council, a process that is expected to take four to six months. Public comment is encouraged during that time, and the document may be revised and edited based on that comment.
