The Albany City Council reviewed the report on March 21, 2016 and directed staff to conduct a series of public outreach activities to determine which intersection improvement alternative is preferred by North Albany residents. The first step in that process was an online survey. Notice of the survey was provided in the April 2016 edition of the City Bridges newsletter (17,000 plus recipients, released March 29, 2016) and through social media (over 3,000 likers/followers). After two weeks there were 326 responses. Many responses included comments and questions that have been addressed by staff. The survey results are summarized on this page.
- Open house, Tuesday, April 26, 2016, from 4:00 - 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Albany City Hall, 333 Broadalbin Street SW.
- Staff will combine survey results and public comments into a report to the City Council.
- The Council will then consider the public input and identify their preferred intersection treatment.
- No decisions have been made about when improvements to the intersection will be made; available funding is limited and the community has competing transportation needs.
- Once the preferred alternative is identified, the Council will need to consider these funding limitations and competing needs before scheduling construction.
