Mountain Brook could get 3 entertainment districts under new legislation

A bill that passed the Alabama House of Representatives would create three Mountain Brook entertainment districts.

The Senate had its first reading of the bill March 30. It’s now before the Jefferson County Local Legislation Committee.

The bill would give the Mountain Brook City Council authority to set boundaries for three districts – English Village, Mountain Brook Village and Crestline Village.

State Rep. David Faulkner (R-Mountain Brook) is the sponsor. Mountain Brook’s council requested the legislation last December.

Under Alabama Law, the entertainment district designation allows participating businesses with liquor licenses to sell alcohol to be consumed off-premises within the boundaries of the district and within its hours of operation.

Birmingham, Huntsville, Tuscaloosa, Montgomery, Hoover and Mobile are among cities with them.
