Below is a link to another story of the failures of Urban Renewal .....Rob T.
Oscar Hult, executive director of the Albany Downtown Association, said the ADA has been keeping track of jobs in the main downtown district, but only since 2010, and only for a small portion of the CARA boundaries (Water Street to Third
Avenue and Calapooia to Baker streets; a total of 18 blocks).
The agency is now planning a more thorough, annual survey of jobs lost and gained for the entire downtown, Hult said. “We just want to know whether or not downtown’s truly becoming more viable.”
Since 2010, he said, the 18-block area has gained 161 jobs and lost 71.5, for a net gain of 89.5.
How much of that is because of the urban renewal district, however, is impossible to say.
