The Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham and the City of Birmingham are conducting the Framework Plan process to shape and direct the development of the Southern Area over the next 5-15 years.

The Framework Plan is an extension of the 2013 Comprehensive Plan and will address issues and opportunities at the community level – thereby providing a more refined and responsive approach to specific community needs than the City’s Comprehensive Plan.

This survey focuses on the Southern Area and its communities and neighborhoods: Crestline (Eastwood and Crestline Park neighborhoods) Crestwood (Crestwood North and Crestwood South neighborhoods) and Red Mountain (Forest Park, Highland Park, and Redmont Park neighborhoods).
