SUPPORT RESOLUTION DECLARING
A MORATORIUM ON REZONE ALBANY 

When? 7 PM Albany Common Council
Chamber 2d floor City Hall.  July 3, 2017

Council Member Mark Robinson (Ward 5)
will introduce the following Resolution for
a vote of approval from the full 15 member
Albany Common Council at their July 3rd
meeting. 

Rezone Albany opens up the remaining
prime residential single family neighborhoods
in the City of Albany to mixed use development.

This will destroy the neighborhood residential
integrity, quality of life, home values and City
property tax base in these single family 
residential neighborhoods, which pay the lion's 
share of property taxes which support
City schools and City government services.

A foolish move for a City on the brink of
fiscal insolvency.

All City residents will ultimately be adversely
impacted by the outcome.

Councilman Robinson can be reached at
221 7811.    RESOLUTION
