Alabama Draft Map

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service held a 60-day public comment period from September 12 -- November 14, 2011, on a draft revised map for John H. Chafee Coastal Barrier Resources System (CBRS) Mobile Point Unit Q01P, Pelican Island Units Q01A/Q01AP, and Alligator Lake Unit AL-05P.  These four CBRS units are located in Baldwin and Mobile Counties, Alabama.  The draft map makes progress towards fulfilling a mandate in the Coastal Barrier Resources Reauthorization Act (P.L. 109-226) to modernize all CBRS maps and make recommendations for the expansion of the CBRS.

Now that the comment period is closed, the Service is making adjustments to the draft map, as appropriate, based on public comments, updated aerial imagery, CBRA criteria, and objective mapping protocols.  We will then prepare a final recommended map to be submitted to Congress. The final recommended map will become effective only if it is enacted by Congress through new legislation.
