Pentagon_3 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?
