Clean & Clear is Five Points South’s bi-annual cleanup event in partnership with UAB’s Into the Streets student program. From trash collection to clearing sidewalks and greenery efforts, last weekend was an opportunity to give back to Five Points South.
“We hope volunteering for Clean & Clear will become a regular event for residents, visitors and business owners,” said James Little, District Manager for REV Birmingham. “There are always many projects and needs to tackle, and we hope to see our community get a lot done during these events.”
“It’s a great opportunity for area residents, visitors and businesses to explore the area while giving some TLC,” Little said. “Also, if anyone in the community notices a troublesome spot—litter, graffiti, etc.—we can add it to the list to address during the next Clean & Clear, later in 2017.”
We hope beautification efforts like this will help create a higher quality of life by attracting visitors and residents, reducing crime and creating pride in the neighborhood where we live, work, play and worship.

TODAY IS THE DAY! REV Birmingham is celebrating 10 years of creating vibrant commercial districts in the City of Birmingham. Today is all about celebrating the past decade of success and all that we have accomplished. It all started ten years ago when two organizations – Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham – merged to create the one and only REV Birmingham. We have covered so much ground since then, from historic building rehab consulting all the way to our refresh of 20th Street North – and we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us here at REV.
REV is turning TEN! Our birthday is swiftly approaching (it’s on November 15th in case you want to give us a happy birthday shoutout!) and we are spending the week leading up to it reflecting on the past 10 years. We have accomplished so much in just a decade, and we can’t wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for us. But for now, let’s take a trip down memory lane and look back at some of our favorite projects.
From Austin, Texas to New Orleans, Louisiana, learn why this family choose to move into the city center of Birmingham. We are interviewing people from all around the city and learning why they chose to move into Birmingham.
