A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley
Albany voters now have a chance to get all the specifics they might want on the proposed new police headquarters and main fire station, the objects of a bond election set for May 19.
Albany’s effort to replace its police headquarters and main fire station downtown took another step Tuesday with a public listening session on how people would like the buildings to look.
One of the reasons Albany hired the Mackenzie firm of Portland to design new police and fire stations was the company’s commitment to and experience with a public process in moving the projects ahead. The firm is wasting no time following through.
