2014 Veteran's Day Event
at Semmes Honor Park

Honoring All Who Have Served

Our Veteran’s Day Celebration on November 11th was quite a success!   A special thanks to everyone that attended and participated in this year’s event.  This was the second Veteran’s Day event held at our Semmes Honor Park – the first being our ground breaking ceremony that took place last year.

Pastor Vint Norris led us in the opening prayer, followed by Pastor Haley Tillman with “The Spoken Word”.

Mary G Montgomery High School Color Guard with Boy Scouts Pack 90 presented “The Presentation of Colors”.  Mary G Montgomery High School Choir sang the “Star Spangled Banner”.

Congratulations to Ms. Mila Dixon, MGM High School, who was our Essay Contest Winner!

Our own Council Member David Baker was our keynote speaker.

A special thanks to the Patriot Guard for their attendance and participation!

 


Comprehensive Plan
for the City of Semmes, Alabama
Adopted September 30th, 2014
by the Planning Commission
(click on graphic below for link)

This plan has been developed over the last year by 
the Comprehensive Plan "Working Group" and Thompson Engineering
from input received from the Semmes Community at local Town Hall Meetings.  
The work for the plan was funded by a 50% match grant from the 
ALABAMA DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION AND NATURAL RESOURCES.

The Planning Commission has been made aware of "mis-information" distributed
about our Comprehensive Plan.

Please be advised that the Comprehensive Plan:

* IS NOT a "zoning ordinance"
* does NOT establish "zoning regulations"
* does NOT establish or create a "Historic District"

   The Comprehensive Plan will in
NO way restrict the use or ownership of any parcel of land. 
 

The Comprehensive Plan is just that - a reflection of the desires and aspirations
of our Semmes Community that defines our goals and objectives.  
It will be used as a roadmap to
guide the
City into the future with all considerations given to the ideas
and suggestions received from the Semmes Community via Town Hall
Meetings that were held.

Only the CITY COUNCIL can adopt a "zoning ordinance" - not the Planning Commission.
