Birmingham-- In recent years, there's been a renewed focus in Birmingham on sustainable development. Last month, Mayor William Bell met with local environmental and community groups for a sustainability roundtable discussion. There, he announced he's reviving the Birmingham Sustainability Commission. As part of our series on sustainability, WBHM's Rachel Osier Lindley sat down with Mayor Bell. They discuss the city's ongoing plans for becoming more sustainable, the 2013 Alabama Green Progress Report and what's next for the Birmingham Sustainability Commission.
