I was recently at a meeting regarding a recycling plant that was possibly moving into our area. A woman asked the attendees if they would be interested in incorporating McCalla.

Now, I am fairly new to McCalla, so forgive me for asking, "Do we have a mayor? Who would take on the task of uniting the citizens here to successfully incorporate McCalla? Would the citizens of McCalla want to be incorporated? Lastly, how would incorporating effect our taxes, schools, businesses and land/home owners?"

We, (my husband, two children and myself) moved here from Hoover, and have loved living in McCalla since the day we moved in! We want our kids to grow up here, and we intend to retire here.

If anyone has any information on this topic, or anything else pertinent to McCalla, please respond. In advance, many-many thanks!

Hi Kelly,
Are there any updates on incorporating McCalla? I am a mother in the area(unincorporated jefferson co) and was hoping a group or committe has been formed to get the ball rolling on making McCalla a city.

Mc Calla does not have a government.........it is considered unincorporated Bessemer, much like Concord, Rock Creek, Adger and Alliance are!

I would rather incorporate to McCalla than Bessemer. I do not think the city of Bessemer has our best interest at hand nor really concerned about the McCalla area. McCalla is large enough to support itself but it is too bad we didn't do this sooner and lost out on the revenue from the new shopping center. It is time. Besides we need a library here as soon as possible for the children, we are growing and need this now.

Start talking to your neighbors. The folks in the subdivisions would probably be more inclined to support incorporation than folks living on their own land.

Default Incorporating McCalla

When you submit for incorporating property, it is parcel specific. If you are a landowner in the McCalla community and would like to stay unincorporated or incorporate into the City of McCalla, that is your choice as a landowner. If a developer has property and wants to incorporate it, then it is just the parcels they own.
