 9/12/14 - El Gringo Mexican Restaurant opens in the Shades Mountain Plaza! 

 

 
**UPDATE**

Updated 9/5/14 - The developer seeking to rezone land in Bluff Park has withdrawn his request.  Good job, Bluff Park! 

The City of Hoover's Planning and Zoning Board will be having two upcoming meetings to discuss and approve the zoning change for a property on Tyler Road from Residential to Commercial for a proposed Neighborhood Walmart.

It is imperative that Bluff Park residents turn out to oppose this re-zoning at both meetings.

Both meetings are inside City Hall in the meeting room behind the council chambers.  The Thursday 9/4/14 meeting begins at 5:00pm and it is a work session (no votes taken).  The Monday 9/8/14 meeting begins at 5:30pm where they will vote on it.  Both meetings need to have a good representation of Bluff Park residents in attendance.
