As the City of Mobile’s coastal peninsula – surrounded on three sides by water; Mobile Bay to the east and Dog River to the west and south – how the struggling, quiet, wetland filled community of 11,000 people develops in the ensuing years is important.
In order to achieve economic redevelopment while preserving the quality of life for those who choose to live in the unique urban area, the Peninsula of Mobile Corridor Master Plan has been developed. With the ultimate goal of defining the peninsula portion of Dauphin Island Parkway as a passive recreation destination location offering a growing network of green and blue way trails, multiple water access points and quiet bird, boat or turtle watching, the Corridor Master Plan promotes Low Impact Redevelopment. It identifies seven (7) Development Centers along the five (5) mile stretch of State 163 to be redeveloped and offers strategies for implementation of the plan.
A plan to develop tax incentives offered to businesses and property owners to improve and sustain successful small businesses should help provide economic growth and job opportunities.
