Sheridan Hollow Opportunity Area
Members of the Community Development Alliance are working with the City of Albany on a three-phase planning project made possible by the NYS Department of State and NYS Department of Environmental Conservation. This effort builds on recent planning for redevelopment in Albany's Sheridan Hollow neighborhood.
- Neighborhood residents, business owners, employees and stakeholders met with designers and planners to re-imagine Sheridan Hollow's strategic assets. Thanks to the City of Albany and Dover Kohl for hosting the workshops as part of the Albany ReZone planning process. Sheridan Hollow Visioning (pdf) August 2017
