The City wants UAB students involved in downtown plans


You care about Downtown Birmingham - after all, you spend your day driving, parking, eating, and going to class in it. If you're part of the nearly 20% of students who live on campus or you live in an apartment just off campus, you live downtown, too. On your urban treks around the Magic City, you've probably come up with some ideas about how to make it better. Here's your chance to be a part of this city's future...

Mayor Bell is making the first amendment to the City of Birmingham's Comprehensive Plan in 50 years. As a UAB graduate, he understands the importance of your opinion. You get the city - the cool grit of Morris Avenue, 2nd Avenue's modern vibe, the hustle and bustle of Five Points, and the various nooks and crannies that only a downtown expert like yourself would know about. Who could be better suited to mold the future of Birmingham?

So join the community in one of the upcoming public workshops to make your thoughts known. The four workshops are divided by topic of interest. Here's the info:
