Have you seen the giant Amazon boxes that popped up around Birmingham last week? The boxes are a creative signal of the city’s official intent to pursue the tech giant’s second headquarters location.
The boxes are the first phase of the Bring Amazon to Birmingham – or “BringAtoB” – campaign, which will engage citizens in and around the city to share why Amazon should call the Magic City home. Citizens are encouraged to participate by using the hashtag #BringAtoB and tagging @amazon on social media, telling the tech giant why Birmingham is the perfect fit for HQ2. All #BringAtoB photos and comments will be captured and displayed on BringAtoB.com.

We are approaching the finish line for the 20th Street Refresh, which calls for a celebration – and you’re invited!

Come join the party on May 20th from 4 to 8 p.m (with a special celebration happening at 6 p.m.)!
If you’ve been paying close attention, you may have noticed that we’ve been hinting at a new Linn Park project coming soon – and we’re finally ready to share it with you! A planning process to redesign and reactivate Linn Park kicked off recently when public and private organizational partners met on site with the nationally acclaimed park designers OJB Landscape Architecture (OJB) to begin an eight-month master plan development process to improve Linn Park.
