The City of Albany was granted sovereign tide and submerged lands in trust in 1919. In 1977, the grant was amended to reduce the tide and submerged lands within the City's grant to three described parcels to be used for statewide tidelands trust purposes in accordance with the City's approved Waterfront Plan. These grants were repealed in 2016 and a new grant was enacted for the same three described parcels to be used for public trust purposes and in accordance with a new land use plan that must be approved by the City and the Commission by 2022.
