A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley
The Albany Planning Division is processing a request for a zone change that would allow more and smaller residential lots on a piece of undeveloped woodland off Franklin Avenue and Airport Road.
This wooded glen in Albany looks like it’s miles from the city. But in fact it’s on Franklin Avenue, just off Airport Road and I-5, surrounded by houses on one side and a trailer park on the other. And it may not look quite so sylvan for long.
