I know that it is not an actual site plan and is a concept, but it the neighborhood just really showed up the developer that a better plan can be made and is realistic. I hope they consider it and really work with their designers to create a true space worthy of the neighborhood.

It looks like the Zaxby's got approved for the corner of Springhill avenue and Mobile Infirmary Drive. The old credit union will be torn down. The big oak tree will be saved.

The Publix shopping center was sent back so the developer can try to make it more neighborhood friendly!

The Midtown Mobile Movement and Stand With Grand (another midtown group) are a step closer to an agreement with the midtown Publix investor.

The developer has refused to make the changes requested by MMM. The Urban Development Dept staff has issued a new report recommending approval. http://urban.cityofmobile.org/urban_...n168150814.pdf The Planning Commission will consider it today (Thursday, 6/2) at 2 pm at Government Plaza. If you think this is a terrible idea, please be there.

I love the idea of a Publix but if the city caves on the first major development to be proposed since the Map for Mobile was adopted, our future will look like West Mobile.

Default Publix planned approved by Planning Commission

The plan was approved. My post above was WRONG. The developer made significant (and good) changes since the plan was submitted in May. They broke a strip center building into 3 pieces and moved one to help block the parking lot from OS Road. Also moved a building to help block the lot from Florida St. MMM did not get everything they wanted and they made a fuss but it is a much better plan. Kudos to them for putting up a good fight. If they hadn't, it would be really bad. I still think this is a bad location for a large development and the plan could be much better but there were infrastructure issues and parking requirements set by Publix that limited things. I am happy that we'll be getting a Publix.

I agree with you. The plan is much better and could still be better. However, I would call this a victory for Midtown Mobile Movement. Kudos to them! I hope put all projects through the ringer.
