    Village Announcements

  • Albany Construction & Monroe Street Impacts

  • Residents are advised to AVOID driving on Monroe Street over the next 2-3 weeks, as construction on critical elements at the intersection of San Pablo Avenue are built.
    The roadway is narrowed in order to allow work on the sidewalk widening & bulb-outs at the main crosswalks; also the signal light will be moved at least temporarily.
    Moreover, major paving is planned to begin by the end of the month on the north portion of the road, and then the blocked off area will shift to the south lane.

    During this time the entire roadway will be impacted and traffic will be congested. Alternate routes are strongly advised.
    Also, please note the remaining parking spaces along the west end of Monroe Street are now generally reserved for staff.
    Please observe the markings at each space for any limitations.

  • Street Marking Re-Painting nearly complete!

  • We thank all of you who cooperated in vacating your parking space during the days we scheduled repainting of road & parking space designations, most of which were worn or difficult to read.
    We hope adding the large (12") numbers at the head of the parking space is helpful to identify the correct numbered space for your use.
    Curb, crosswalk, STOP & 15 MPH markings are also being refreshed. A good reminder to observe full stops at each sign and keeping speed down throughout the Village.

    This work did uncover a number of vehicles needing registration updates or that appeared to be abandoned and not moving for a long period of time.
    Please remember that to park & keep a vehicle on the premises, it must be properly, currently registered and be in operating condition. Also, vehicles in non-reserved spaces need to be moved at least every 72 hours.
