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.
