Post Date:04/16/2020 11:11 AM

Albany, GA – The Board of Commissioners approved a 60-day moratorium on abatement and demolition of residential houses in the historic district, excluding properties subject to a final Order of the City's Municipal Court.

The reduction of blight and revitalization of the historic district are priorities for the city. Community interest has been growing over the past year to reduce the number of demolitions in the historic district. A 60-day moratorium will provide city staff time to develop strategies to decrease demolitions and increase revitalization.
