Agenda For Tomorrow's Birmingham City Commission Long Range Planning Session

Saturday, February 1st, the day of the City Commission's Long Range Planning Session is one of the biggest days in the civic minded  City of Birmingham. That is because on that day many of the City Departments and related interests present their plans for the future to City Commission.  

The demand is such that getting on the agenda  for the Long Range  Planning session is considered a victory. 

No decisions are made and  no votes are taken at the Long Range Planning Session. City Commissioners do however ask questions, offer suggestions  and make comments. 
As a rule of thumb, questions by the commissioners is good. Silence followed by the perfunctory "thanks for coming," is bad. What most of the presenters want is a "go ahead" for future consideration.
