noun: mobility



  1. the ability to move or be moved freely and easily.
  2. the ability to move between different levels in society or employment.

Sounds like a pretty good description of our lovely city in 2016, doesn’t it? Things are happening here in Mobile, Alabama. And so that’s the name I chose for my new column in Lagniappe.

Mobility will look at all the positive developments we’re seeing, from an energized city government to new citizen activist groups and the projects that are coming to fruition. My goal is to stitch together the pieces to assess the overall impact on this place we call home. We’ll look at what has changed since 2014, what things will look like by 2020, and keep you up to date on projects in progress.

You can find the first Mobility column in the October 20 issue or read it online here.

Next up in Mobility: A tour of the Mobile waterfront.
