Welcome to the Town of Colonie

Business Starts Here

Since it was first established, the Town of Colonie has been the crossroads of the Capital Region. Early settlers chose Colonie for its high-quality farmlands and today, industry chooses Colonie for its access to markets and quality workforce. Wooden plank roads that supported the American Revolution have turned into state and interstate highways that 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.
