I believe that Huntsville is the perfect place for museums. I'm talking, natural science, history, military, cultural, art, interactive, etc. The list could go on and on!! My husband and I struggle to find enough family oriented, educational attractions to entertain our 3 children. Unfortunately, we end up having to drive an hour or more to find things to do. We want to keep the money in our own city, but with limited ...more »
Mr. Madsen; Does the city of Huntsville have a time frame for a launch date for an autonomous mobility phase in? Several cities around the country and the world already have self driving projects up and running!
Hey Huntsville: Huntsville has professed it self as a high tech town for decades. Why not bring self driving cars here for locals to take a spin and get acclimated to what is the future of transportation in the long term,
So recently I have learned a lot about how public transportation can actually solve a lot of issues with poverty and traffic! As Huntsville keeps growing, I've thought that we need more roads, but the truth is that more efficient public transportation is going to solve the issues of the traffic that we all hate, and it can actually help a lot of families in our community that struggle to own a car. The more roads, the ...more »
Huntsville has the number #1 tourist attraction in the state of Alabama . What if we could have another large scale tourist attraction downtown? That could boost new and existing hotels and also generate new commerce downtown. I would like to encourage everyone to envision a new downtown attraction. Something that could move the city up to the top of tourist destinations. Two possibilities could be a Space needle or ...more »
Displaying “Drive Friendly” signs and bill boards, posted especially along high traffic routes and marked on city vehicles, could possibly ease traffic conflicts. A few years ago we saw the “Drive Friendly” signs on a trip through Texas; it may have been psychological, but it just seemed the Texas drivers, for the most part, were friendly; it made us want to drive that way too. It seems “friendliness may beget friendliness. ...more »
The new John Hunt Festival Field would be a great venue for music, "June Jam" type shows.. Promoters should take note. These type shows drew very large ticket-paying audiences and provided top-notch entertainment.
Anyone heard anything lately on the Constellation project?
I see dirt being moved occasionally, but nothing more.
Has Big Spring ever been open for paddle boats and kayaks? Having a limited number of each and requiring reservations would control the traffic. Charging a rental fee would help with cost. It would bring more people out to enjoy the park through the warmer months. Vendors with small wheeled carts selling ice cream, lemonade, pretzels and such would also be nice to have. Makes me think of a Seurat painting. Minus the ...more »
Huntsville has every outdoor sport in the works all over the city except for Basketball. I've traveled all of the country and overseas and most rising cities have one. Our local talent has increased recently and even brought Alabama Basketball to the VBC so its time the city has an outdoor Basketball court with bleachers.
Outdoor Racquetball follows the same rules and gameplay as traditional racquetball only on a 3/4 wall with no ceiling. Cost is greatly reduced with outdoor courts. There are no public racquetball courts in Huntsville. There are plenty of tennis courts and soon to be pickleball, which doesn't look as fun as racquetball. Any existing racquetball courts are found in fitness centers that charge a premium fee to be a member. ...more »
In following the several conversations here about skyscrapers, I must say I've also been fascinated with them from an early age. I believe it was at the age of ten that my father took my brother and me to watch an Atlanta Braves games, back when Hank Aaron was just a few home runs away from breaking Babe Ruth's record. Even then, Atlanta had many tall buildings, and I remember seeing the downtown Atlanta skyline from ...more »
