Residents concerned about what will happen to College of Saint Rose’s buildings
Residents packed the Pine Hills Library on Thursday to share their thoughts about how the closure of the College of Saint Rose will affect the neighborhood.
The college has been a staple of the neighborhood for more than a century, but it is shutting down at the end of the spring semester.
The Albany Common Council organized the meeting and gave each person 3 minutes to speak.
The common sentiment was disappointment.
A representative from the college sent a statement saying that they understand that this is a challenging time for the community, and they are going to take everyone’s concerns into consideration.
