The Landmarks Commission was established by the City Council in 1979 and is described in Albany Municipal Code, Chapter 2.76.
The commission was established to “safeguard the city’s historic and cultural heritage; foster civic pride in the beauty and noble accomplishments of the past; protect and enhance the city’s attractions; strengthen the economy of the city and property values; and promote the use of historic districts and landmarks for the education, pleasure and welfare of the people of the city.”
Before beginning any exterior renovation project that would change the appearance, material, or character of a historic structure, please contact Community Development to discuss your project and schedule site visits using the City's historic preservation program page.
