UPDATE: The Birmingham News reports that UAB pulled the item from the agenda earlier this evening.
That evening rush hour view along I-65 may be getting a change soon (and one that may give northbound travelers something to look at. The Birmingham News learned that UAB planned to make a presentation to the university system’s board of trustees asking that they be allowed to purchase the Medical Center Inn; plans are said to involve an expansion of athletic fields for the school. More importantly for many, it means no more Waffle House in the city center (and right after they started to accept credit cards too).
We’ll see if we can learn anything else (or see if someone else does first) and let you know.
