Action delayed on new retail at Fair Park

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham City Council committee delays action on plans for new retail at Fair Park.  Monday at an Administration, Budget and Finance committee meeting councilors said they needed more information and a more concrete plan.

Developers say CVS Pharmacy and Aldi grocery store have shown interest in opening up shop, as well as a bank.  Councilor Steven Hoyt, whose district Fair Park is in, says he wants community input to hear what residents want to open up shop.

Developers have been instructed to figure out a way to include the community and come back in 2 weeks.
