Birmingham mayor William Bell is currently on a listening tour – incidentally just before the start of what promises to be as intriguing a budget process as the city has ever gone through. It also happens to be an election year (though it’s still early).
This evening the tour will make a stop at More Than Conquerors Faith Church on the city’s West Side (Dennison Avenue to be exact) starting at 6 p.m. The focus of tonight’s discussion will be on the future of transit and education in Birmingham – two issues becoming increasingly more important than ever.
Perhaps the folks at Black & White will be particularly interested in tonight’s community gathering as a potential beginning to a follow-up of their February 17 feature piece titled “The Decline and Fall of West Birmingham.”
According to one of the tweets announcing the meeting this afternoon via Twitter, the meeting is open to the public.
