Public Comment Needed: Mobile County's Blueway Master Plan Development
Mobile County launches online tool to encourage public input on comprehensive blueway master plan development
Mobile County, AL – Mobile County is seeking community input for a comprehensive master plan to improve recreational paddling experiences in the county. Individuals may share their thoughts and ideas through a mapping tool and survey found at www.mobilecountyblueway.com.
The Mobile County Blueway project's vision aims to celebrate and protect the county's waterways while sustainably enhancing and increasing access to places to play, relax, and reconnect.
The project is seeking community input about potential or existing launch sites, points of interest, hidden gems, and experiences that are unique to Mobile County. The master plan aims to celebrate the best of our natural environment and improve access for all residents.
The project's initial phase seeks to create a clear picture of the opportunities and challenges that exist for creating a robust and sustainable paddling network in Mobile County.
The anticipated project stages are:
- Phase 1A: Inventory, Analysis & Engagement
- Phase 1B: Planning / Master Plan
- Phase 1C: Implementation
To enable broad community participation and address the restrictions and safety concerns created by COVID-19, the online tool has been developed to enable residents to participate.
This initial survey and mapping exercise will be open for public input through February 26, 2021.
