Enhancing the quality of life in Leeds is what Mayor David Miller focuses on everyday of his administration. Devoted to education, Miller has witnessed the dream of Leeds Primary School become a reality and is thrilled for the endless opportunities students have throughout Leeds City Schools.
Pleased with the financial state of the City of Leeds, Miller says Leeds has an A+ to AA bond rating. “That is unheard of for a municipality of our size,” Miller said.
Eager to extend a warm welcome to new businesses and continuing great working relationships with long-time Leeds businesses is one of the many reasons Leeds is thriving. Many of our downtown businesses have taken advantage of the Leeds Redevelopment Authority matching grants to upgrade or repair their business facades. Our Downtown Redevelopment plan has improved the appearance and safety of our downtown area. New businesses are opening downtown and new storefronts continue to open at The Outlet Shops of Grand River.
Honored to be one of only 17 cities in our great state to be named an Alabama Community of Excellence, Miller could not be happier that Leeds is a city that’s on the move. “We’re excited to have a lot of activity going on in the right direction,” Miller said. “Leeds is open for business.”
The City of Leeds was recently named third in the state for future wealth growth by the Birmingham Business Journal and came in fifth on www.movein.org for places young professionals want to live.
This city that’s on the move and open for business welcomes you to join in the discovery of what continues to make Leeds the stellar City of Valor.
