Montevallo Takes Steps to Strengthen Oversight in Downtown Business District

Montevallo updates their business license application process

Montevallo, Alabama is making changes to its business license ordinance with a focus on certain types of businesses in a specific area of the city. The new requirements aim to ensure that businesses locating in the downtown area meet specific criteria. This updated ordinance applies only to businesses in the downtown area of Montevallo and is not city-wide.

Existing businesses of the specified types will not be affected by these changes, only new businesses seeking a license will have to follow a new application process. The process now involves a review by the city council, rather than just the revenue officer. City leaders emphasize that these changes are not intended to prevent these types of businesses from operating in Montevallo, but rather to enhance oversight and the quality of businesses in the downtown area.

By requiring a more thorough review process, Montevallo is working to maintain a vibrant and diverse business community while also ensuring that businesses meet certain standards. The updates are part of the city’s efforts to improve its downtown area and create a more attractive location for businesses and residents alike.
