Map for MobileUDC

Unified Development Code v3 is now available for comment

By March 16, 2020May 20th, 2020No Comments

The zoning code overhaul, known as the Unified Development Code (UDC), is the result of nearly three years of effort to modernize the City’s 1960s-era land use regulations and implement the community’s vision in Map for Mobile, our comprehensive plan. Based on a large amount of community feedback on draft Version 2, the current draft UDC (now version 3) has been significantly revised.

We look forward to engaging with citizens and businesses in the City of Mobile, as we take the next steps with this important action item from the Map for Mobile process.

UDC version 3 information went live on this site on March 16th. Thank you for your continued support of our implementation of the Map for Mobile initiative!
