ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The City of Albany’s mayor and two council members are looking for public input on a new West Hill Community Center. An online survey is available for people to submit their comments.

The survey was announced by Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan, Councilmember Jahmel Robinson, and Councilmember Joyce Love, in conjunction with three community events where residents can take the survey in person and share their ideas with city officials.

Community events to discuss New West Hill Community Center

  • Tuesday, June 8th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. at Swinburne Park on the corner of Clinton Ave. & Manning Blvd.
