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!
The Rainbow Viaduct, one of Birmingham’s oldest bridges, has been transporting people between the south and north sides of downtown for more than 130 years! Now as we look toward its future, you’ll see a pilot project on the bridge to make it more pedestrian and cyclist friendly while we determine the best next steps.
