A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

On the riverfront: More homes going up

Written March 22nd, 2019 by Hasso Hering

Along the Albany riverfront — my beat, if you’ll remember — home construction has entered another phase at Edgewater Village, and a long-planned apartment complex is still in the works farther east, near Bowman Park.


Albany takes up riverfront challenge

Written November 16th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

After years of talking about it, Albany is trying to follow its neighbors on the Willamette River by stimulating redevelopment of its riverfront. The first step — you guessed it — is finding a consultant.


No big deal: Noted on the riverfront

Written May 7th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

Some days there is nothing to see on my riverfront beat. But sometimes there is, even if it’s nothing big. Three items caught my attention Monday afternoon.


On the riverfront: Stuff’s going on

Written October 11th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Things have been quiet on my waterfront beat, but there’s stuff going on, mainly including the installation of a new and improved railroad crossing at Water Avenue and Hill Street, a main entrance to the Edgewater Village development.


On a slow day, watch the river rise

Written April 28th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

Patrolling my riverfront beat on Friday afternoon on the bike, I could not help but notice that the Willamette had risen rather sharply over the last few days. Looks like the Corps upped its releases from the upstream dams.


On the riverfront, a new convenience

Written June 22nd, 2016 by Hasso Hering

For a few weeks now, Albany’s Bowman Park has sported a fine new restroom, but it hasn’t been ready for use. Completing it has taken longer than expected, but the wait may be over now.


No mystery here: DC Path update

Written May 4th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

Those mysterious chunks of concrete lying along the Dave Clark Path on Albany’s riverfront are no mystery at all when you remember that a contractor is working to install lighting all along the trail.


On the riverfront, ‘an exciting change’

Written April 30th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

My riverfront beat is rarely quiet for long: Saturday night, it turns out, was the last time a scheduled wedding was held at Albany’s Wheelhouse because it no longer will serve as an “event center.” That’s the word from Janet Johnson, who along with her husband, Dave, owns the landmark building on Water Avenue.


Riverfront beat: No place for naps

Written October 10th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

Sooner or later, I thought while riding my riverfront beat on Saturday, efforts to revive Albany’s riverfront will have to deal with the question of how to attract more customers, residents, visitors and even home buyers to a place where the homeless often hang out.


Close call at a blind corner

Written September 28th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

If you’re looking for a respite from bad news about politics and everything else that’s going wrong, you have come to the right place. This is the home of the mundane. Like blind corners on one of my bike routes along the Albany riverfront.
