City seeking citizen input for 2019-2023 Capital Improvement Program

The City of Albany is soliciting citizen comments on its 2019-2023 Capital Improvement Program (CIP). This important financial planning tool identifies capital needs, establishes priorities, and forecasts expenditures for various projects over the next five fiscal years. 

Generally, the CIP contains major projects and programs that have significant impact on the city’s infrastructure. The CIP is the principal tool used to plan and prioritize capital investments for the five-year period.

The City Council, Planning Commission, and Budget Committee reviewed the document on April 5, 2018.  Comments from that meeting have been incorporated in the document that is now available for further citizen review. Copies of the CIP are available for viewing through Tuesday, June 12, 2018, at the Engineering counter at Albany City Hall, 333 Broadalbin Street SW; at both Albany public libraries (Carnegie Library, 302 Ferry Street SW; and Main Library, 2450 14th Avenue SE); and at cityofalbany.net/cip.

For specific project information or questions, contact Jeff Babbitt, Public Works Engineering Division, at 541-791-0064. Written comments must be received by Friday, June 1, 2018. Comments may be mailed to Marilyn Smith, Communications Officer, City Manager’s Office, City of Albany, P.O. Box 490, Albany, OR 97321 or emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Additional input will be accepted at a public hearing during the Albany City Council meeting at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, June 13, 2018, in the Council Chambers at City Hall.
