We have a handshake deal to protect crucial wetlands in the Dog River Watershed. Stay tuned as the deal becomes finalized.
The above map is not a legal document and while outlining the approximate boundaries of the site and preservation areas it is not binding nor to scale. It is intended to give the public information on the tentative deal to protect Rabbit Creek wetlands.
Although any development that fills wetlands means some degradation of our waterways, these concessions will protect Rabbit Creek for future generations to enjoy. That is something to be celebrated.
However, the deal is not final yet. When these details become finalized, Baykeepers’ concerns will have been met, with the most sensitive wetland areas having been granted protection.
You can thank Mayor Stimpson and his team for brokering this deal, which takes into account the real costs of this kind of development for the city of Mobile. Ben Reynolds stood up for the people and places he represents in District 4.
We’d like to thank all the Coastal Alabamians who made their voice heard to protect water quality. Stay tuned as the deal becomes finalized.
