The goal of the Central Albany Revitalization Area (CARA) is to increase the economic vitality of the area, encourage the use of vacant and underused land and buildings, and rehabilitate structures while increasing property values both in CARA and the city of Albany. To date, every dollar spent on public improvements in the revitalization area has brought in roughly six dollars of private investment.
The CARA Advisory Board is appointed by City Council serving as the Albany Revitalization Agency. Advisory Board members generally live or own property or businesses in the Central Albany area.
