Thurscay evening the Birmingham Planning Commission will hold a public hearing for what would be the first fully adopted comprehensive plan in the city’s history. It is scheduled to take place from 6 – 8 p.m. on the third floor of Birmingham City Hall.
A draft of the plan has been available for public review at City Hall, several Birmingham Public Library locations, and online (separated by chapter – because yes, it is that comprehensive) since March 4. The 18-month project, spearheaded by the city’s department of planning, engineering, and permits and lead consultant Goody Clancy, is in the potential home stretch this evening. It awaits only approval by the Planning Commission and an endorsement by the Birmingham City Council remaining before the process moves into the implementation stage.
Regardless of your opinions on The Plan, you’re encouraged to attend this evening’s event. The Terminal’s official stance on whether or not it should be adopted is waiting comfortably for you to read over at Dear Birmingham.
