Each year we’re one step closer to unleashing the Capital City’s full potential. We’re seeing progress and new investment throughout all of Albany’s neighborhoods and commercial districts. Park South has become a neighborhood of choice, Central Avenue businesses are thriving, our emergent Warehouse District is buzzing with new investment and Downtown—Albany’s newest neighborhood—is embracing its role as the heart of the Capital District. It’s an exciting time to be Mayor in the City of Albany. We will continue to build on the momentum of this year’s achievements and I look forward to a promising year ahead. Sincerely,

Hon. Kathy M. Sheehan Mayor
