On Saturday, March 25th, nineteen UAB students representing three sororities participated in UAB’s student-led Into the Streets Program, a volunteer service and leadership program. The students dedicated their Saturday morning to picking up trash, disposing of cigarette butts, and pulling weeds from tree beds and bench planters downtown on 2nd Avenue North. REV is proud to partner with UAB on cleanup projects here, in theFive Points South and Ensley neighborhood commercial districts. Thank you to everyone who participated!
This fall, the REV team is doing some new REV things, with a demonstration project designed to prove and improve downtown Birmingham’s market for more retail.
I believe that Birmingham is still missing something important—something that inspires people to experience downtown on foot, that can tell the story of our city and its cultures.
