NOTICE - Montevallo Walk Box
The Chamber of Commerce has moved from the location of 845 Valley St to a temporary location on Campus. The walk box had to find a new location. Steve Gilbert the Executive Director of the Chambers of Commerce was so gracious and found a new home and arranged entrance on non-business days.
The box is officially located in the front lobby of Montevallo City Hall. City Hall is opened Monday through Friday 8 AM to 4:30 PM During off hours like holidays and weekends, use the intercom box located on the right hand wall near the front entrance. The police dispatcher will open the door.
We will be updating the walk directions, however in the meantime, the walk itself will continue to start at 845 Valley St.--Chamber of Commerce old address. The City Hall is very close to the start point of the walk. We recommend that you sign in, obtain walk directions, stamp your credit books, and take an envelope with you so you do not have to return to the Montevallo City Hall. Once you finished signing in, just take a left on Main, left on Middle and right on Valley and 845 Valley is on the left, across the street from the bank's parking lot. Or if you use City Hall’s driveway, it connects to Valley St and then you will take a right.
The information available on the AVA website has been updated to reflect the change in walk box location.
PLEASE COME WALK WITH US!
