The following resolution which was introduced and read at the regular meeting of Tuesday, November 10, 2015, and laid over for one (1) week until the regular meeting of Tuesday, November 17, 2015, was called up by the Presiding Officer.

RESOLUTION 60-734-2015

Sponsored by: Councilmembers Richardson and Manzie

RESOLUTION IN SUPPORT OF THE THREE MILE CREEK COMPREHENSIVE WATERSHED MANAGEMENT PLAN

The Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan for the Three Mile Creek Watershed, located within the cities of Mobile and Prichard and unincorporated areas of Mobile County, Alabama, was prepared by the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program, the Mobile Area Water and Sewer System, and other concerned community leaders with interest in the long-term viability of this area. In agreement with the spirit and goals of this plan, and acknowledging the environmental and economic importance and value of this watershed, a call for intergovernmental cooperation is necessary to successfully achieve this restoration and conservation program.
Whereas, the Three Mile Creek Watershed, located on the northern edge of the City of Mobile and draining portions of the City of Prichard and part of the unincorporated area of Mobile County, Alabama, drains 19,237 acres and contributes to the health and vitality of its receiving waters in the Mobile River and Mobile Bay, and

Whereas, the landscape of this watershed ranges from gently rolling terrain in headwaters downstream to low coastal plains, tidal marshes, and historic wooded wetlands, and

Whereas, the landscape of this watershed has undergone extensive commercial and residential development resulting in 37% impervious cover, and

Whereas, conversion of the natural landscape to impervious cover may cause increases in volume and velocity of stormwater runoff in this watershed, the parties seek to decrease flooding; deter non-point source pollution that include trash and litter, pathogens, and nutrients; channel erosion; degraded habitats and infrastructure; and preserve the tributaries and creeks that ultimately flow into Mobile Bay, and

Whereas, two tributaries in this Watershed – Toulmin Springs Branch and an unnamed tributary to Three Mile Creek – are listed on the 2014 Alabama 303(d) list for impairment by nutrients, and

Whereas, total maximum daily loads for pathogens and organic enrichment/low dissolved oxygen have been approved by U.S. EPA for Toulmin Springs Branch and an unnamed tributary to Three Mile, and

Whereas, a Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan for the Three Mile Creek Watershed, co-funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Mobile Area Water and Sewer System, the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program, and Mobile County, and completed in September, 2014, provides evaluations of problems within this watershed and recommends conceptual corrective measures to address them,

Now, therefore be it resolved by the legislative body of the City of Mobile, Alabama that it endorses the Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan for the Three Mile Creek Watershed, and

Be it further resolved that the City of Mobile willingly agrees to participate on the Three Mile Creek Intergovernmental Task Force to focus on implementation of specific measures and actions contained in the watershed management plan.
The resolution was read by the City Clerk; whereupon Councilmember Richardson moved that the resolution be adopted, which was seconded by Councilmember Gregory, and the vote was as follows:
Ayes: Richardson, Manzie, Small, Williams, Rich, Daves, Gregory
Nays: None

The vote was then announced by the City Clerk, whereupon the Presiding Officer declared the resolution adopted.

Councilmember Rich stated that a portion of Three Mile Creek is in District 6 but not included in this plan. She said that this section would not be appropriate for kayaking but there could be walking paths that could connect to the rest of the watershed. She asked for consideration of her request.

Councilmember Manzie thanked the residents, the Bottom community, the Leadership Academy, and all who were a part of bringing this plan before the Council. He stated that he was in agreement with Councilmember Rich’s request.

RESOLUTION 60-735-2015

Sponsored by: Councilmember Rich

Whereas, the Mobile City Planning Commission has reviewed the Map for Mobile, Framework for Growth, a new Comprehensive Plan for the City of Mobile; and,

Whereas, there have been various community meetings, studies, and recommendations considered as part of the comprehensive planning process; and,

Whereas, the City of Mobile solicited input from the public, and from that input developed a vision for the City’s future; and,

Whereas, the Mobile City Planning Commission conducted a public hearing on the Draft Plan; and,

Whereas, the Mobile City Planning Commission city staff shall provide an annual written report by the second quarter of every calendar year identifying action items that have been achieved from the Map for Mobile, Framework for Growth; and

Whereas, the Mobile City Planning Commission adopted the Map for Mobile, Framework for Growth dated November 5, 2015, as revised, as the new Comprehensive Plan for the City of Mobile; and

Whereas, the Mobile City Planning Commission recommended that the Mobile City Council consider adoption of the Map for Mobile, Framework for Growth dated November 5, 2015, as the new Comprehensive Plan for the City of Mobile.

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved that the Mobile City Council hereby adopts the Map for Mobile, Framework for Growth dated November 5, 2015, as revised, as the new Comprehensive Plan for the City of Mobile.

Ayes: Richardson, Manzie, Small, Williams, Daves, Gregory
Nays: None
Abstentions: Rich

The vote was then announced by the City Clerk, whereupon the Presiding Officer declared the resolution was tabled.
