Weekend bus service to trail heads

The North Alabama Land Trust and Alabama Rivers Alliance have built and maintained some pretty cool spots where Huntsville and Madison County residents can opt to be outside! But they are only open to those with automobiles. Working in conjunction with the various transit agencies in North Alabama and the Huntsville Metro, it would be cool to have some weekend bus service to some of the more popular trails and recreational... more »

I would like to see are locall churches maybe form a consortium and provide our youth groups a ride to Six Flags or Dollywood/splash country during the summer months since we lack the such venues here locally. To our City,County and Education Leadership, Can someone answer this for me? Why is it that that we have to be so "Behind " the curve with the rest of the country! Especially when it comes to our local schools policies.... more »

Deep South Ideological Mindset!!!

I don' t know why, some people here locally are so slow to to accept national trends. I have ONE serious question for our local school and state education officials,that is if high school senior's in Malibu can go and get an "In and Out burger for thier lunch, why can't our local high seniors be given the same latitude. To have open campus lunch as well. If the BIG City and West,and East coastal communities can do this,... more »

Actually work on Zierdt Road

If the city actually expects to finish Zierdt Road in 2023 (note that's only the portion going to Martin Road, not the long expanse going further south, which is where most of the residents live), that will require actually doing work. It won't happen by magic. It's as if the city is coming up with new and novel approaches to make this take as long as humanly possible. Yes you will occasionally see a couple of trucks... more »

90210 VS 35810...

If I were a local High School Student these days I'd be really pissed off seeing what other high school students have Around the country. Why Can't are locall High Students enjoy and have the same perks as many other High School Students Have around The country involving... more »

future high tech and DoD Air travel

As Huntsville is growing expentionaly with Aerospace and the Tech industry, Maybe are city and county leadership would be willing to work with Huntsville International Airport and the existing carriers to provide direct non stop flights to LAX ( JPl in Pasadena, Rockwell and the Lockkeed Skunkworks in Palmdale. And also access to Vandenburg/Edwards AFB. Also Flights to SFI to Silicon Valley

Future of transportation.

Ladies and Gentleman, I'm sure some you are tired from hearing from me. Some of you might think I'm a "nut job" I'll take that. I just want to say as Huntsville and Madison County are growing, we need to be thinking long range. Everything I've been seeing and reading is future transit will be autonomous and vertical/flight..We should be cognizant of this and be planning accordingly. We need to think about putting in sector... more »

Open Burning

I've seen a lot more climate-related posts, so I thought I'd jump in with one of my pet peeves. For the love of all that is holy, can we ban all open burning of leaves, branches, pine straw, etc., when the burn pile is within 1000 ft of another house? This time of year it seems my neighbors are all taking turns to see who can make the neighborhood the smokiest. This weekend we had another neighbor light up a pile that... more »

Teen Friendly Ideas

Why is it that so many communities here in the USA forget about our "teenagers" ? For the most part cities here in the in the United States aren't very teen friendly! I mean if one is say from 14-17 years old they are too old for the ball pit at Chuck E. Cheese and they've aged out of the boys and girls club activities, but yet they're not old enough for Tootsies or Whiskey a go go. Where are they to go and what might... more »
