The Pentagon is heading for Birmingham! Okay, not the Pentagon. But the Alabama city might be getting a shiny new five-sided building all its own.
A new city jail, police and fire headquarters, police
academy and public works offices would be housed in one
pentagon-shaped building under Mayor Larry Langford's
plan to build a municipal center in Titusville.
Holding an aerial photo of the Pentagon building in
Washington to show the design, Langford detailed his plan
Monday during a City Council committee meeting.
Langford on Saturday first told a crowd gathering for
Titusville Day of his idea to demolish the jail and other
buildings on Sixth Avenue South and build a municipal
complex across the street. On Monday he described the shape
of the building and named the other offices it would house.
Hey, it's good enough for the federal government, right?
