Mobile is on the cusp of a new era – one with expanded opportunities for economic development and accelerated growth. While the City faces a bright future, it also faces a number of challenges such as limited mobility, sprawling conditions, and declining neighborhoods. Mobile’s biggest challenges are also its biggest opportunities. If Mobile can affect positive change in these areas, the quality of life for its citizens will improve and the city will thrive.
Map for Mobile is a framework plan that provides direction and guidance to improve the City and prepare it for the growth on the horizon. The plan presents goals and policies upon which future planning, regulations and decisions can be built.
Future Land Use Plan and Major Street Plan
The Future Land Use Plan (FLUP) and the Major Streets Plan (MSP) were adopted as part of Map for Mobile on May 18, 2017.
The best way to create policies that improve people’s lives is to listen to their ideas. During Map for Mobile’s planning workshops, hundreds of members of our community came together to share their ideas and priorities for the future.
Five years since Map for Mobile was adopted, the City has been successful both in implementing dozens of specific recommendations of the plan, but more importantly, in affecting positive change in each of the goal areas.
In June 2021 a Status Report to the Community was presented to Planning Commission. You can view the draft report below.
Map for Mobile is more than a broad vision. It is also intended to serve as a tool for progress. The Action Plan contains a list of projects, programs, initiatives or steps that the City should focus on to support the goals of Map for Mobile.
This 2021 Action Plan updates the original Action Plan based on significant progress in the past five years. View the Action Plan below.
