We heard you! Due to popular demand, the informal public comment period for the draft Unified Development Code (UDC) has been extended to April 8th.
Over the past few weeks, the City of Mobile has received quite a few citizen and stakeholder requests to extend the deadline for public comment submissions on Version 2 of the Unified Development Code (UDC). As of March 7th, we have extended the informal public comment period for 30 days. The new deadline for comments will be Monday, April 8th at 5:00pm.
When the extended informal public comment period ends (4/8), Build Mobile staff will begin reviewing comments on the draft UDC Articles and Zoning Map. After that process is complete, a public comment report and draft Version 3 of the UDC will be released. Version 3 will consist of a tracked comparison of all changes in each Article and an updated draft zoning map.
Upon its release, there will be a 30-day informal public comment period for Version 3. The outcome of the review and feedback to Version 3 will result in the creation of Version 4 which will be submitted to the Mobile Planning Commission and Mobile City Council for their review and consideration, respectively. Updates will be made on the www.mapformobile.org website as the process benchmarks unfold.
As always, we thank you for your support of this important initiative. Your constructive feedback and input have been and will continue to be critical to this process.
