Jefferson County Amphitheater could be poised to be groundbreaking in early 2023

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) – The potential Jefferson County Amphitheater is closer to a date to settle finances and innovate.

Jefferson County and City of Birmingham leaders are waiting to review the BJCC’s financial agreements before handing out the money. These are expected to be shared by BJCC leaders just before Christmas. Yet everyone is expected to complete this project.

A number of entities must come together to make this dream a reality.

The BJCC, Live Nation, Jefferson County and the City of Birmingham must all agree to pay five million each before work begins.

However, for now, only the BJCC and Live Nation have provided the funds.

Commission Chairman and BJCC Board Member Jimmie Stephens still believes they will break new ground in early 2023.

“At this time the County Commission needs to act and will act right after the first of the year and the City of Birmingham from there. We will get our funding in place and hopefully break new ground,” the commissioner said. Stephens.

It is important to note that on Thursday, the BJCC discussed and approved two different contracts for the planning and design phases of the amphitheater in, perhaps, another sign that this project is getting closer to reality.
