A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley
If the city council goes along, Albany is about to spend $3.4 million on crossings along the Water Avenue railroad line.
For someone in a wheelchair, trying to cross the railroad track on Water Avenue to reach the Dave Clark Path is an arduous adventure if it’s possible at all.
It would be interesting to know who has made offers to buy and develop the lot at 300 West First Ave. in Albany, the site of the former and now demolished downtown branch of Wells Fargo Bank.
On Saturday the steel roof supports of the new stage in Albany’s Monteith Riverpark were still sitting on the ground. Today they had been lifted into place.
Unforeseen complications have raised the cost of demolishing the former Wells Fargo Bank branch in downtown Albany.
Under the terms of the city contract, the demolition of the former Wells Fargo branch in downtown Albany had to be finished by the end of June. Laneco, the Portland-based contractor, got the job done with three weeks to spare.
The former site of the Wells Fargo Bank in downtown Albany has been put on the market for a listed price of $310,000 and, according to a city official, has attracted quite a bit of interest.
