Planning & Zoning

The City of Vestavia Hills is served by a City Planner under the oversight of the City Clerk/Zoning Official. The department works closely with Administration to strategically achieve the highest and best use of public and private parcels within the City of Vestavia Hills. This is accomplished both through proactive planning as well as responsiveness to ideas presented.
