Local News

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — We have an update this morning on the proposed plan to bring a concrete plant to Five Points West.

Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin said he has made a decision.
Mayor Woodfin said, “Sherman Industry will not be coming to the Five Points West community. Thank you.”

When the move was originally announced, it drew push back from people who live in the area and members of the city council. Residents were concerned the cement plant would be environmentally harmful to their area.
