Steve Alexander has always been passionate about the growth and vibrancy of the Five Points South community. As chairman of the Five Points Alliance Board, which recently rounded out its first year, Alexander is actively engaged in the redesign and revitalization of the community that is home to both his business and himself.
Alexander helped form the infrastructure for the Alliance – from holding meetings to collect community input on how to improve the district to strategically recruiting Alliance board members who would best reflect the Five Points community. Although the board members are of various ages and different backgrounds, they have one thing in common: an unwavering commitment to the advancement of Five Points South.
“There are many talented people in Birmingham that are willing to bring forth their talents and contribute to bettering the city,” said Alexander, who has served his hometown of Birmingham as an attorney since 1988.
Through his work with the Five Points Alliance and as an attorney, Alexander says he has learned a lot about Birmingham. His hope for the city’s future is that the energy residents put into its growth continues to expand and that Five Points South will become a more vibrant community by attracting more residents, becoming more accessible to walkers and cyclists and embracing a greener culture.
Alexander, along with Alliance Board Vice President John Boone, is looking to the future by exploring ways to finance revitalization and management of the district. The two are investigating business improvement districts (BIDs), like the one that funds the CAP program downtown, and other structures for funding the work of the Alliance.
