Mayor Madden: City to Update Public on One Monument Square Project

TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the City of Troy will host a community meeting on Monday, November 5, to update the public on the next phase of redevelopment of the One Monument Square site. The event will be held at 7:00 p.m., at the Arts Center of the Capital Region, 265 River Street, Troy.

Mayor Madden said, “Public engagement has been central to the redevelopment of One Monument Square, with hundreds of residents, business owners, and community stakeholders lending their voice to the discussion about the future of the site. We encourage everyone to attend and remain involved with the next steps of this exciting community-guided project.”

During the meeting, project designers and planners will present a refined concept for the site. Following the presentation, the City, along with the design team, will analyze project costs, available grant funding, and other factors necessary to move the project forward. The City previously held a multi-day workshop to study the site, inviting Troy residents, business owners, employees and the general public to participate in developing a shared vision for the One Monument Square site. The feedback provided during the meetings were used to develop a series of site illustrations which feature significant open public space, two levels of parking, views of the Hudson River, and pedestrian connections down to the adjacent William D. Chamberlain Riverfront Park.
