Fultondale moves closer to rezoning Glendale neighborhood for business use

FULTONDALE — On Monday, Fultondale moved a step closer to rezoning the Glendale neighborhood to a business district.

The city council heard the first reading of a proposed ordinance to rezone the Glendale neighborhood from a residential multi-family district (R-3) to a general business district (B-2).

Mayor Jim Lowery said rezoning the property will increase property values and benefit residents by allowing them to sell their homes for business use.  

He added that the zoning will not require people who live in the neighborhood to move or make any other changes.

The area being considered is more than 200 acres between Decatur Highway and the Promenade Shopping Center. There are about 135 houses in the neighborhood.

Glendale was one of the worst-hit areas in April 2011 when a tornado ripped through Fultondale. Many of the homes were destroyed or later condemned by the city.

The city council will have a public hearing on Jan. 13 at 6 p.m., which is the next regular city council meeting. At that meeting, council will also hear the second reading of the proposed ordinance and vote on the rezoning after hearing feedback from the public.
