See City Center Master Plan in Progress


As the employment center for the region, downtown Birmingham faces the same challenge as other cities – developing and maintaining a walkable mixed-use center that remains vibrant day and night.  How do you grow a residential base from our current 11,785 people that live within the study area and provide housing options for all people? This plan is an opportunity to address these issues, as well as land use, equity, economic vitality, transportation and other quality of life issues identified by the public.
