Mt. Laurel is a master planned community in Shelby County Alabama. The idea the planners focused on is the simple joys was a walk to the store, the small town feel that you see in movies and on television. It is a change from the suburban sprawl where walking to a store would take over an hour on streets not made for pedestrians.
This focus on community offers shopping, entertainment and dining, a public community library, green spaces, and a town center. The community focuses on events to bring the residents together to strengthen the bonds of the Town of Mt. Laurel.
