The Five Points Alliance is inviting anyone who has a vision for the future of the area to have their say. The alliance is embarking on the development of a Master Plan for Five Points South to guide its sustainable development into the future.
A major strategy of this planning process is to identify what Five Points South needs and how you feel it could be improved.
KPS (http://www.kpsgroup.com/ ), the authors of a previous Five Points Streetscape Plan are facilitating a public workshop sponsored by Five Points Alliance with the Five Points South neighborhood stakeholder group. After the workshop, KPS will analyze and organize the input received in the workshop. This information will be incorporated into the Five Points Master Plan.

One of the most legendary and storied neighborhoods of Birmingham is Woodlawn. It is a community, anchored by one of the great public high schools of Birmingham, that has produced many citizens who contributed to the life of our city and has had an impact beyond the neighborhood itself. In a short post like this true justice cannot be done to the rich heritage and legacy of Woodlawn. However, we hope that this narrative brings together many of the diverse threads that make up the fabric of the community’s historic arc in a concise piece.
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.
