Two Major Developments Possible for Vestavia – We Just Keep Going!

There seems to be an over arching theme of development in Birmingham. Huh, maybe I’m crazy to think that, but a pattern is certainly there 😉

Vestavia is obviously on the list, here what’s being proposed now:

Meeting the demand of consumers and future homeowners, the city is on the right track. Here is the next set of plans that is being proposed:

The resolution would authorize the city’s portion of the project’s funding, up to $190,000.
