The Waterfront

Our waterfront is a valuable and important part of Albany and it has great potential. It is underutilized and parkings lots adjacent to the shoreline are an abomination.

I support the vision of the Voices to Vision process. I agree with its outcome. I was pleased that the process was inclusive of all the citizens of Albany. 

I support maximum open space, minimum development (to replace or extend potential lost racetrack revenues), adding to the adjoining sections of the Eastshore State Park, and completing the Bay Trail. Future development proposals are sure to come and I am prepared to consider them thoughtfully with an eye towards protecting our waterfront while doing what's best for the citizens of Albany as well. As a Sierra Club leader, I expect to have a hand in refining the Sierra Club vision of the waterfront as new opportunities arise.
