MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The Mobile city council has decided to seek national historic recognition for two city neighborhoods.

One is “Automobile Alley,” which was traditionally a prime spot for car dealers downtown. The other is the Texas Hill community, a historically black neighborhood.

Al.com reports (https://bit.ly/1FTdxxZ ) that the council on Tuesday voted to ask the National Park Service to place the two on the National Register of Historic Places.

Both are already the focus of urban renewal efforts.

There’s a plan to turn “Automobile Alley” into a tech corridor and business park. And the city council last month asked a planning firm to create a neighborhood revitalization plan for Texas Hill.
