A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

What’s that? Another construction site…

Written December 11th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

What are they building there? That’s a question I get now and then, and in the case of 416 Pacific Blvd. S.W. in Albany, the short answer is “a commercial building.”


What’s ‘wrong’ with this scene?

Written May 9th, 2017 by Hasso Hering

There’s not much to say about this Albany highway sign, except that, well, this does look like the wrong way to attach a sign.


On Pacific, from Wendy’s to weeds

What used to be Wendy’s restaurant on Albany’s Pacific Boulevard has been closed for a year and a half, and the property has turned into a showcase of landscaping neglect.


Overpass: A diamond jubilee

Written September 19th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

Police site: The access issue

Written July 25th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

There’s been some question about access to and from the planned site of a new Albany police station on Pacific Boulevard S.W. (Highway 99E).  Today there’s new information on that point from Ron Irish, the city’s transportation systems analyst.


Take a look at Albany police site

Written July 24th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

Here’s a closer look at the site where the Albany City Council would like to build a new police headquarters. It’s off Pacific Boulevard S.W., just north of the medical office complex north of 29th Avenue. (I wish the place would get an address to make describing it less cumbersome.)
