City Planning and UAlbany Graduate Student Research Project

Entry in rear, parking off site


At this meeting, we will hear from a class of UAlbany Graduate Students who have been working with the Planning Department since August 2021 to conduct a research project.

The research was about the current tax foreclosure auction system, its impact on our neighborhoods, and potential alternatives the City could consider to promote stronger community development and stronger neighborhoods.The study area used for this project was North Broadway, spanning from Partition to Washington Avenue. It was chosen due to its abnormally high number of tax auction properties.
