Rainbow City is located in the southern portion of Etowah County. It is convenient to major state highways and is near Interstate Highway 59. We remain one of the fastest growing cities in the state, both in industry and residential growth. With various forms of recreation, such as parks, recreation center, track, and boating, and convenience to major shopping centers, it is no wonder that more people are choosing to relocate in Rainbow City, Alabama.

Neely Henry draw-down planned for fall
This fall, Alabama Power is planning to draw down Neely Henry Lake to provide residents with better shoreline construction conditions. In anticipation of the water-level draw down, Neely Henry Lake residents who have shoreline construction projects are encouraged to begin applying for lakeshore-use permits this summer. Due to the lack of predictable, sustained water-level drops that provide lakebed access each year, the company expects heavy resident interest in lakeshore-use permits for shoreline construction during the planned reductions.
“We are encouraging residents to approach us early,” said Dennis Trammell, Alabama Power shoreline manager for Neely Henry Lake. “Those who contact us now for lakeshore use permits for dock and shoreline construction will be in better shape to get early approval so they can start lining up a contractor.”
While the exact timing of the drawdown depends on weather conditions, Alabama Power plans to gradually lower the lake level beginning the first week of October. The planned drawdown of about four feet will last for a two-week period and give residents and contractors better lakebed access for permitted construction projects.
This gradual lowering will also allow Alabama Power biologists – in coordination with the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service – to survey mussel and fish populations in lower Big Canoe Creek.
Residents and contractors considering construction projects along the shoreline can call the Neely Henry Shoreline Management Office in Ragland at 205-472-0481 to apply for a lakeshore use permit before they begin construction.
