Downtown Albany is an eclectic blend of historic charm and character with a growing mix of trendy businesses in an urban setting. A strong downtown association, city commitment to a new urban renewal district and a growing population all combine to create renewed energy in downtown.
Albany’s urban renewal district, the Central Albany Revitalization Agency (CARA), has made the downtown core a priority for projects within the district. Funds for building rehabilitation, streetscape and special projects have all been earmarked in the current CARA budget. Visit the Incentives/Resources and Project pages above for more information on CARA funds and downtown projects.
Downtown is centrally located to growing populations in Linn and Benton counties. With a population of 50,000 and more than 100,000 in a 20-mile radius, Downtown Albany is positioned to serve a broad customer base.
