A Commercial Revitalization District
The City of Birmingham designated Lakeview as a Commercial Revitalization District (CRD) in 1991. As one of 26 CRDs in the City, businesses in the District are subject to design review guidelines.
Work done on the outside of buildings that can be seen from the street requires approval by the City’s Design Review Committee. All work that requires a building permit is subject to possible design review. Signage also must be approved. The guidelines do not apply to routine maintenance or work done on the interior of structures.
For more information, please contact the Planning Division, 205-254-2479.
Guidelines can be found here.
