What is a Framework Plan?
Framework Plans are future planning documents that provide a clear vision of the kind of place the community wants to be in the future. The Community Framework Plan influences policies that have a direct bearing on quality of life. City leaders will look to the Community Framework Plans for direction on land use, new development, transportation, housing, parks, trails and open space, utilities and economic development. Click on any of the community links to learn more about active Framework Planning in your area.

The Framework Planning Process is conducted by the Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham (RPCGB), operating under contract to the City of Birmingham. This project is funded by the Building Communities Program. Representatives from both the RPCGB and the City of Birmingham will research existing conditions and facilitate community meetings to create a set of recommendations for the three different areas identified in this website.
