Albany is the eleventh largest city as of 2007[9] in the U.S. state of Oregon, and is the county seat of Linn county.[10] It is located in the Willamette Valley at the confluence of the Calapooia River and the Willamette River in both Linn and Benton Counties, just east of Corvallis and south of Salem Oregon. Albany is largely a farming and manufacturing based city. Settlers founded the community in 1848,[11] as of the 2000 census, the city population rested at 40,852[12] with 91.68% of the population being White. The population has since increased to an estimated population of 49,165 as of 2009.[13]

Albany has a home rule charter and is a Council-Manager management style to the municipality where the full time unelected City Manager administers the day-to-day operations and affairs of the city for the Council and is the administrative head of the city.[11] The city provides the population with access to over 30 parks and trails along with running the senior center and many cultural events such as River Rhythms and Mondays at Monteith. On top of having a large farming and manufacturing base the city largely depends on Retail trade, Health care & social assistance to drive its economic structure.[14] In recent years the city has taken great efforts to revive the downtown shopping area, with help from The Central Albany Revitalization Area (CARA), in to a major portion of the economy.[15][16]
