The Cahaba River is one of Hoover's most important assets. With more than 50 miles of frontage along the river, city leadership has identified recreation access as a key priority. In Fall 2022, the Hoover City Council approved the purchase of the former Bama Concrete property along Lorna Road. With direct access to the Cahaba River, this +/- 1.7 acre site presents a key recreation and commercial development opportunity. The Office of Economic and Community Development is actively working to advance this project.
