Serving the Citizens of Albany, Georgia and Surrounding Communities
Albany is considered the economic, cultural and recreational hub for a large, growing region that takes in parts of North Florida and Southeast Alabama as well as Southwest Georgia. Albany is located midway between Atlanta, Ga., and Panama City Beach, Fla.
According to the latest national cost-of-living index, Albany is Georgia's urban area with the lowest cost of living. It also has the lowest housing and transportation costs, and its healthcare costs are also among the lowest of Georgia's major cities.
Today, Albany and Dougherty County support more than 110 manufacturing plants, two municipal industrial parks, a vibrant transportation/distribution system and a military installation, the Marine Corps Logistics Base - Albany. Phoebe is the city's largest employer.
But Albany is not "all work and no play." The area's citizens long ago took seriously their roles as stewards of the land, preserving the beautiful countryside and unique way of life that led to Albany's reputation as the "Good Life City." An abundance of wild game found in Southwest Georgia led to the establishment of dozens of shooting preserves. The area is also blessed with numerous woodland plantations that now serve as hunting grounds where sportsmen from around the world come to experience the Georgia outdoors.
In Metro Albany, alone, there are five golf courses, including two municipal courses and three private courses. Recreational venues include: The Parks at Chehaw, the Flint RiverQuarium, the Albany Civic Center, the Thronateeska Heritage Museum & Planetarium, the YMCA and Paul Eames Park.
Culturally, few cities of this size can match Albany. The "Good Life City" houses a 65-piece professional symphonic orchestra with a full-time, resident conductor, a live theater group and a ballet company in the beautifully restored 300-seat Albany Municipal Auditorium. The Albany Museum of Art is the only fully accredited art museum in Southwest Georgia. It is home to a permanent collection of 19th and 20th century American and European art, as well as one of the finest Sub-Saharan African art collections in the Southeastern United States.
The city is served educationally by a strong mix of public and private secondary schools, specifically Albany State University (a four-year institution that is a member of the University System of Georgia), Darton College (a two-year unit of the system), several other colleges in the area and a major workforce training center, Albany Technical College.
Albany is blessed with near year-round warm weather. Though the winter months can get chilly, the fall, spring and summer months are full of beautiful days with temperatures ranging from the breezy 60s to the sunny 90s. The average annual temperature is 66 degrees F with a low of 34 degrees F and a high of 82.5 degrees F. The average annual rainfall is 49.5 inches.
