The City of Birmingham’s Comprehensive Plan was adopted by the Birmingham Planning Commission on October 2, 2013 and endorsed by the Birmingham City Council on March 18, 2014.  To facilitate the implementation of the City’s Comprehensive Plan, a 21-member Implementation Committee was formed in February 2014 and it includes members of the Planning Commission, business community, non-profit organizations, community leaders and other stakeholders.  The Implementation Committee held its first meeting on March 11, 2014 and a year later, they agreed to organize through subcommittees based on the five main themes of the Comprehensive Plan (Green Systems, Neighborhoods & Community Renewal, Prosperity & Opportunity, Systems & Networks, and Plan to Action).  The Implementation Committee continues to work with City officials and other stakeholders to ensure that the community’s vision and goals are accomplished.
