As the Belk Hudson Lofts and other downtown improvements are beging to take shape Huntsville should start thinking about a long range plan to improve and develop a river walk greenway from Church ST (by the dog park) that follows the river all the way to the Lowe Mill. An attractive usable river front that connects the down town to Lowe Mill Arts Center will encourage the redevelopment of the properties (now old defunct strip malls) that front (or back, as is the case now) the river. A few pubs and coffee shops along the way would pop up I'm sure. By connecting the arts and crafts center to the downtown Huntsville would be creating an entrepreneurial creative and innovate center in the heart of the city.
