What is your favorite BIG Picture idea for Huntsville

Beach on the River

There is an artificial beach across the river from Triana that is hugely popular. If we had a beach on the river in Huntsville it would be HUGELY popular. How can we be given such a great God given gift like the Tennessee River and do so little with it? Hobbs Island would be a great option for a location but across 231 from Ditto landing might work or even across from the river, but that would put it outside the city. We need a beach and it only points to incompetence that it didn't happen 50 years ago. We could use the rail lines to add light rail or put in busses to haul kids and others. This is a no brainier that should have already happened.
