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

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

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

State MP David Faulkner (R-Mountain Brook) is the sponsor. Mountain Brook Council moved to legislate last December.

Under Alabama law, the entertainment district’s designation allows participating businesses with alcohol permits to sell alcohol that is consumed within the district’s boundaries and during its off-site hours.

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