Expand Shuttle Bus Hours and/or Days

I met a widow and mother who moved here to Huntsville, and who was trying to finish her degree at a local college. She was dependent on the bus system here to get back and forth to school. She can't afford to buy a car right now, and using taxis/Uber fares every day are a bit out of her budget. Huntsville is a city where you need to own a car to get around. It is fantastic that we have the Shuttle bus that allows our ...more »

The new Huntsville-Redstone Arsenal regional plan

This isn't a proposal (although if it's true, let's go for it!). It's a question...I heard on NPR this morning that Huntsville and Redstone Arseanl might partner on a multicounty plan that might involve surrounding counties like Morgan, Limestone, and Marshall Counties plus Madison County. It was just a one sentence statement. Do you have any details on this effort, like major players and so forth? It sounds like a good ...more »

Recreation Activities and Classes

I moved here a year ago and have been unsuccessful in finding Recreation Activities and Classes- I have concluded that the city does not sponsor any besides a few sports programs. I propose the current Parks and Recreation department to expand and create classes for kids and adults to include the current sports offerings in addition to courses like community foreign language classes, performing arts, health and wellness, ...more »

A centralized Huntsville logo and color scheme to connect our wide-spread city. Then use it on: 1.

Easy way to find city/county/school government jobs

This isn't strictly a "Huntsville" issue, but this is the only local forum I know of. It would be great to have a single place to see all city/county/state/education government type jobs. Currently, I have to go to the individual entities website to see whether they have a clerk job, for example, and I never know if I'm missing or forgetting one. As far as I know, the below list includes all the different entities, but ...more »

Hampton Cove//Big Cove Post Office

This excerpt from The Big Picture indicates a large growth for the Hampton Cove area. .• The Providence area in West Huntsville had the most building permits issued, while the Hampton Cove area in East Huntsville added the most housing units. Sounds like a good time to consider a new post office in this cove area. The 35763 zip area is served by the Owens Cross office which is extremely over burdened. The staff and ...more »

Greening Downtown

Buildings and their rooftops create impervious surface, run off and reduces places for water to percolate through the soil. This contributes to pollution and urban heat islands. In consideration of new high rise buildings, could the city please think about how we might improve living with living plants and materials? I'm thinking about buildings having green rooftops and places for rooftop gardens. Not only does this ...more »

Historic/architectural guidelines for Huntsville

With all of the controls on residential property owners within the historic districts, why do the commercial property owners act with impunity? The Five Points area is a prime example. Home owners need approval to paint a backyard fence while commercial properties are torn down without a word----see the Emma's Tea Room property. Or perhaps the historic building on Franklin(around the corner from Harrison Bros.) where ...more »
