When will the repair/upgrade to Massey Road begin ? That road continues to worsen with cracks and pavement sinking.

What is the status of the pedestrian bridge on Highway 31?

In reading through these comments I agree with them wholeheartedly regarding the lack of the opportunity to have fiber optic high speed internet connectivity in our community. Allowing companies like Charter and AT&T to simply sit on their hands and do nothing has created this problem and its a shame. If someone like me wants the new Fiber Optic internet connections that either AT&T, Charter or other providers have but they are unavailable because of the "franchise" system which allows them to do nothing because they don't have to is ridiculous. I have been keeping an eye on the AT&T Fiber (formerly AT&T Gigapower) for a while now and they have it available at the corner of Acton Road and Colonnade Drive it is available as well as some other locations there and you can order it from the map linked here when you click on the Alabama button if you are in the area. https://www.att.com/att/mdu/ However when you contact them directly and ask for it they simply tell you it is not available in your area. Although it is available in Hoover, Bessemer, Birmingham, Columbiana, etc... but living in a high income area like ours we are stuck with the ridiculous connectivity from the existing AT&T and Charter networks? I simply don't understand it; especially when I see the work that Southern Light Fiber has been doing up and down Highway 31 for the last few months putting in fiber optic backbone cable but that is only available to businesses and simply would be made to be too expensive for residential installation. With cities like Chattanooga, Tuscaloosa and Huntsville ramping up and becoming full fledged "Gig" Cities its ridiculous to not be able to have this option. Over the last year I spent a lot of time in Chattanooga for work and I can honestly say that the way they did their Fiber optic network is awesome and it is done right. They haven't just done it for Multi-Density buildings or office complexes or even just a few select neighborhoods. It has been done for all residents and businesses in the within their city limits. As a result the Charter service and AT&T services are coming in and upgrading their infrastructure and lowering their prices to the residents because they have competition and a reason to do it. Our community should step up and do something similar; we need to update and upgrade the capability we have and it would have an impact on home values as a positive as well.

Would love to see an Octane along 31/rocky ridge that serves cocktails at night. More restaurants like Moes in rocky ridge that creates entertainment vibes. A Tavern type restaurant that would be a good place to watch games or grab a drink with friends. Maybe family entertainment down 31 south like the putt putt golf that use to be where storage place was down there. I know it's hard to create the community feel along 31

A family friendly restaurant in CH/LP area with games/arcade for kids. And beer for parents! Like the old Papa Joes- a '90s favorite. A perfect spot after a ball game.

I would love to see a Fresh Market in Vestavia. I live two minutes from Sprouts but I drive down the hill to Brookwood to shop at Fresh Market because I do not like Sprouts. The quality of food and the atmosphere is much better at Fresh Market. A Taziki's would be wonderful. They are always packed with customers. We do not have many choices in Vestavia for family, sit down meals other than Mexican restaurants. Not many places to meet up with friends for an evening. It is a shame we can't do better with the City Center as an entertainment district for people, especially young people to have a place to hang out after a movie or dinner, and listen to music, sit outside if weather permits. Homewood seems to do this well. A pizza place such as Davenport's which we have frequented for forty years, again a family, friends place to gather for an evening of dining and just visiting. Vestavia does many things well but this type of planning has always been lacking, at least in Vestavia Proper. Might be a good idea to get feedback from the twenty and thirty somethings who live in Vestavia to give them a voice. We have more than enough mattress stores, nail salons and drug stores. Most people want a village atmosphere even though we have a highway running through our city. We can still have a village atmosphere on either side of the highway in our lovely neighborhoods.

It would be great to recruit a local brewpub (or satellite), or a nice, local watering hole that's close to home. It's a shame to have to go downtown for a nice place to meet friends for a drink. Other than Bistro V, there is not much in old Vestavia.
