If you know REV Birmingham, you know that we are are always working tirelessly to make Birmingham a more vibrant city! What you may not know, however, is that a lot of the changes we make are backed by actual data. Over the past year we have compiled tons of data surrounding our downtown area which we will be putting into our Value of Downtown report (which will be released very soon – keep an eye out for that)! Rob Buddo, REV’s City Center District Manager, is here to explain just how important this data is and how it will help us make improvements to our downtown area in the near future.
Make sure you follow us on all of our social media pages @revbham for more updates surrounding the Value of Downtown report! You can also subscribe to our newsletter here for weekly updates on all things REV!
We’ve talked about sports, but downtown has so much more to offer! Downtown Birmingham has so many experiences in store for you, which can also turn into life-long memories. And lucky for you, we’ve created a tool to make all that exploring so much easier!
Ever host an event where you ordered way too much food and end up with more leftovers than you can even fathom? We’ve been there too – until we learned about Magic City Harvest! Magic City Harvest is an organization working towards ending food waste & hunger in the Magic City. They acquire perishable food from schools, wholesale food distributors, restaurants, caterers, churches, event venues and grocery stores to donate to 30 community partners on the frontlines feeding the city’s hungry neighbors.
We are approaching the finish line for the 20th Street Refresh, which calls for a celebration – and you’re invited! The City Center Business Improvement District (BID), funded by downtown property owners, is partnering with the City of Birmingham and REV Birmingham to celebrate a refreshed Birmingham Green. Come join the party on May 20th from 4 to 8 p.m (with a special celebration happening at 6 p.m.)!
