Birmingham City Council District Eight (District 9) is a legislative district of the City of Birmingham from which one representative on the Birmingham City Council and one member of the Birmingham Board of Education are elected. The city was divided into nine districts to preserve minority (white) representation following a court order issued in "Yarbrough et al v. City of Birmingham)" (1989). Prior to then councilors were elected at-large. The district is currently represented by Councilor John Hilliard.

District Nine covers a large area of northern and western Birmingham, including Wylam and parts of Ensley, North Birmingham and Pratt City. The district's borders were modified in 2013, ceding Fairmont and the eastern edge of North Birmingham to District 4 and adding downtown Ensley from District 8, while ceding a low-density section of Thomas.
