GOOD HOPE, Ala. – Good Hope’s City Council held its second June meeting at Good Hope City Hall Monday night and got things started with a rezoning ordinance. The City’s Planning Commission held a public hearing June 17 and all nine members voted to recommend the rezoning of 33.68 acres located at 2551 County Road 437 (Corey Harbison Park) from R1 (Residential) to GB (General Business). The Council passed Ordinance No: 010-2024 to approve the rezoning.
