First Draft of the Irondale on the Move Comprehensive Plan is Released!

The Irondale on the Move Comprehensive Plan is the City of Irondale’s first Comprehensive Plan, intended to bring Irondale into a bold new era, one of optimism and confidence with a clear direction forward. This Comprehensive Plan is based on the residents’ vision of how they want their city to grow in the future— it is a long-term vision – and is intended to guide future development and to address the broad range of needs for the City.

The Project Team is now releasing the first draft of the Comprehensive Plan, and is seeking feedback from the public on the vision, goals and recommended actions contained in the working draft of the plan. Topics covered in the Irondale on the Move Comprehensive Plan include the following: future land use, community renewal, livability, green systems, public services and infrastructure, economic development, transportation, recommendations for Downtown Irondale and the US 78 / Crestwood Boulevard Corridor, and implementation strategies.
