  Public meeting on Africatown Welcome Center design April 6 

Mobile, Ala. — The City of Mobile will host a public meeting in Africatown on April 6 to start gathering input from the community about the design of the future Africatown Welcome Center. 

This initial public meeting on April 6 will be focused on broad design concepts, such as form, flow, architecture and environment. Consultants will be on hand to demonstrate various concepts and options and take feedback from the public about what the Africatown Welcome Center should look and feel like. City leaders and the design team will hold a brief presentation before shifting to an open-house format.  

Mayor Sandy Stimpson and Councilman William Carroll will attend the April 6 meeting to welcome stakeholders and community members as we start this collaborative process together. As the design work continues, Mott MacDonald and its sub-consultants will create design alternatives based on the community's input. That's why it's essential that the community is engaged throughout the process.
