GULF SHORES – The City of Gulf Shores invites all residents and stakeholders to join them on Monday, Sept. 11, at 5:30 p.m. in the Erie Meyer Civic Center for the unveiling of a new master plan for the anticipated Coastal Gateway Community Park in North Gulf Shores.
The city began working with Dix.Hite + Partners last year to develop a master plan for the 127 acres of city-owned property located on Coastal Gateway Boulevard (County Road 8) with the intent to expand accessibility to city-provided services and amenities in North Gulf Shores.
"Our community has seen substantial growth north of the Intracoastal Waterway over the last 10 years, and our city council recognizes how important it is that we provide accessible city services and amenities to all residents," Recreation and Cultural Affairs Director Grant Brown said. "The unveiling of the master plan is another exciting step forward in enhancing residents' overall quality of life."
The new master plan outlines a phased development strategy that includes:
Coastal Gateway Community Park: A central feature of the plan, offering a wide range of passive and active recreational amenities.
North/South Connector road: An infrastructure improvement designed to enhance connectivity.
Future elementary school site: Identifying a location for a future elementary school to support the growing community.
Utility enhancements: Upgrades to essential utilities for improved service.
Public safety facilities: A new fire station and police presence to ensure continued safety and well-being of the community.
Before the start of the master planning process, the city hosted a public involvement meeting to gather input from residents on what amenities and services they would like included.
"The input we gathered from residents was a critical piece in developing the master plan. We can't wait to show them their input and vision come to life when we unveil the master plan," Brown said.
This event will be held in person. The master plan will be available for viewing on the city's website at www.gulfshoresal.gov following the event.
