You’re Probably Wondering…Why 58?

Those are our digits, our identifier, our number.

Alabama has long identified each county with a number as the lead figure on numerical license plates- we call tags. Throughout the state, for those who know this ‘county code’, 58 is synonymous with Shelby County in Alabama.

We are working hard so a 58 tag brings to mind:

  • Natural beauty and premiere recreation

  • World-class executive to suburban to rural lifestyles

  • Positive, smart growth and development

  • Visionary economic development strategy

  • Creative and collaborative people

  • Leaders focused on improving the lives of our residents

And our ultimate goal?
For you to have a 58 tag too!
