Join Mayor Stimpson and other city officials for the Map for Mobile open house at the Alabama Cruise Terminal on Thursday, July 16. This family-friendly event will feature fun activities, food, and entertainment.

“This is a rare chance to be a part of creating positive change that will impact the growth of our city for years to come,” Stimpson said. “I invite citizens to bring the whole family, because no one knows Mobile better than those who live and work in this community.”

There will be a brief overview of the plan’s status and next steps at 5:30PM, but citizens are encouraged to drop in anytime between 4:30 and 6:30 to review the draft plan recommendations and talk one-on-one with city staff and planning consultants.

These draft recommendations are based on community input gathered at the Focus on the Future Workshop in March and the Designing the Future Workshop in May, as well as dozens of community and stakeholder meetings.

Map for Mobile is the City of Mobile’s first comprehensive plan to be conducted in more than 20 years. This intense eight-month process to develop a long-range plan will build off other recent planning endeavors for the city and the region. The plan will serve as a guide for long-term preservation, revitalization, and growth so that the city can achieve the goals and aspirations of citizens.
