Come provide input and share your ideas with City community leaders. Representatives from Smart Growth America—national experts in community development—will also be present to answer your questions and provide insight into success stories from around the country.

Thursday morning Haleyville and several surrounding fire departments fought a four-alarm fire at a house on 13th Avenue in Haleyville for over an hour before subduing the flames. The house belonged to Simon and Christy Ann Foster. With Simon and Christy at their respective jobs and their two teenage children in school, no one was home mid-morning when smoke was first seen coming from the house. However. two dogs trapped in the house were lost but a pet snake survived. The snake was in a glass enclosure. The house suffered extensive fire, smoke and water damage and possibly considered a total loss. The house was formerly owned by Mrs. Rachel Gay and was located just across the street from the baseball field which was once the Ben Smith football field.
