Updated Future Land Use Maps for Public Comment

The Future Land Use Plan is an element of the Comprehensive Plan and is advisory in nature.  It does not have the force of law.  It is intended to help achieve the city’s long-range vision of growth conceived with a 2030 time horizon in mind; understanding  the amount of job growth and household growth that can be achieved.

The comprehensive plan’s Future Land Use Plan Map has been revised and is available for download below, along with a description of the future land use categories.  The community maps highlight the areas that have been revised (the Brownville, Crestwood, East Pinson Valley, and Southwest community maps had no changes). You can provide your comments about the community maps either by using the comment function at the bottom of this page or by sending an email to info@birminghamcomprehensiveplan.com. We ask that you provide your comments by January 27, 2014 to allow staff time to review all the comments and develop recommendations prior to the hearing. Thank you for your continued involvement!

Note: The citywide Future Land Use Plan Map will be presented for consideration at a Birmingham Planning Commission public hearing to be held at 8:30 am on Wednesday, February 5, 2014 (not February 4 as previously stated) in City Council Chambers of Birmingham City Hall.
