Map for Mobile

The City’s comprehensive plan adopted in 2015lays out an exciting vision for Mobile’s long-term preservation, revitalization, and growth. The core values that guide the plan, defined through a robust public process, include a stronger, mixed-use downtown, supported by diverse and connected neighborhoods, businesses, and open spaces. Most importantly, the plan includes realizable action steps to ensure that recommendations become reality.

Our Plan

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.

Our Progress

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.
