Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan, Albany Police Chief Eric Hawkins, and Albany Parking Authority Executive Director Matthew Peter have announced a 30-day extension of the program creating curbside pickup areas in front of local eateries that continue to serve takeout. The dedicated parking spots were designed to protect both employees and customers and ensure the continued compliance of social distancing protocols. Curbside pick-up parking spots may only be used for up to 30 minutes and are denoted with the featured sign. Business owners can download and print these signs here.
Any restaurant offering take-out that would like to be included in the program should contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (518) 434-5105 to request the appropriate signage and learn more.

The City of Albany and Albany Parking Authority created this program in consultation and partnership with the Downtown Albany Business Improvement District, Lark Street Business Improvement District, Central Avenue Business Improvement District, and 6th Ward Councilmember Richard Conti.
