Since it was first established, the Town of Colonie has been at the crossroads of the Capital Region. Early settlers chose this location for its high-quality farmlands and today industry chooses us for our access to markets and quality workforce. Highways and Interstates travel the routes once covered by wooden plank roads that supported the American Revolution and continue to move goods and people throughout the Northeast. The Albany International Airport is the first municipal airport in the United States and today it puts major markets within reach before 9 a.m. Today, Colonie actively promotes, develops, encourages, and assists in the construction, expansion, and equipping of key businesses and industries which advance general prosperity and economic welfare in our community.


Colonie is consistently recognized for its high quality of life including award-winning schools, a commitment to the environment, and being a safe community.
