The Bayou La Batre City Docks Redevelopment Project (City Docks Project) is an opportunity to revitalize the City Docks. The goal is to meet current and future economic, environmental, and recreational needs by planning sustainable retail and commercial developments and recreational opportunities that support eco-tourism, fishing industries, and aquaculture. The City Docks Project provides a means for developing amenities that attract both locals and tourists while showcasing Bayou La Batre’s small-town coastal atmosphere and historical heritage as the Seafood Capital of Alabama. 

The following rendering shows what City Docks Redevelopment Project could look like in the future.
