Bringing peace back

Lets shut down Strata Form's 3rd shift from operating anymore. It is located within 30 yards of the back doors of the people living on Robinhood Lane, as well as some others on willow ridge . They run all night with doors open. Loud machinery, beeping sounds, fork lift horns, people shouting. They need to shut down 3rd shift, or better even,,close and relocate to a suitable industrial arear,,not the back yard of a residential ...more »

Indian Creek Blueway

Clean and maintain Indian Creek from Providence at the north end of the creek to Madison Pike on the south end. I have floated this area in a kayak with my wife and had to portage around a couple of blockages. There was one area where a local had used rebar in an attempt to build a dam. There is some overgrowth and a few shallow places. Strictly enforced catch and release fishing. This would be so much fun!

Nice neighbors keep neighborhoods nice.

Recommend - garbage cans and other refuge be placed on the curb for pick-up NO SOONER than 4 PM the night before pick-up and cans removed from the street the SAME day as the pick-up.

 

Is there an ordinance or should there be?

 

This is being neighborly to keep our neighborhoods orderly and nice looking and keep properties valuable.

 

We got this idea from a New Jersey Face Book post – seems if they can we can too.

Playground for greenway

I would love to see a gathering play space in the Jones Valley area along the greenway between Lendon and Valley Hill Golf Course. There are a ton of families in this area that use the greenway and it would be nice to have a playground like the one way down by Challenger and the one by Publix on Mnt. Gap. Please consider this idea, it would be an asset to the community and our children. Thanks

Rideshare vehicles should be clearly marked

This weekend, a friend of mine had a life threatening experience. While driving late downtown, a group of strangers suddenly got into her car and expected her to take them for a ride. She thought she was getting robbed! It turns out they were Uber customers who simply got in the wrong car. This is becoming more common in cities across America, and making scary news stories everywhere. The root cause is that most rideshare ...more »

City Center Designation

It seems the best location for this may be at the current location of the Madison County Courthouse. Huntsville should designate a “City Center” with both GPS coordinates and word addresses. The “City Center” could be designated with proper signage leading to the location. It simply state "City Center" instead of a made-up “marketing” name. The Huntsville City Center should have a Wi-Fi spot and tourist information ...more »

Address numbers should be visible

How many times have you gone to a local apartment complex, especially after dark, and found yourself in a maze with no guidance of your destination? Bonnell Drive is a perfect example that comes to mind. Houses and businesses sometimes have this issue too. Huntsville relies a lot on transient folks, those who live here under a decade, and then move onto another job elsewhere as needed. And those folks tend to live in ...more »

How about the city accept through roads for what they are?

Here is the perfect example of the growing problem: Traveling Martin Road M-F for work, like many, many others, I have to wonder what the point was in even changing Martin Rd over the Parkway.  Maybe the bridge needed to be longer to accommodate new lanes, but other than that possible need, where did the interchange idea come from?  For decades Martin road and the on/off ramps for it have existed as they are - allowing ...more »

Pedestrian overpass between Big Spring Parks

Has any thought been given to creating a nice, wide, pedestrian overpass to connect both sides of big Spring Park? It could not only be functional, but could be a landmark if designed to allow space (maybe could be used by a small vendor--think Venice, Italy bridge). It would also be very useful for events like Panoply, and if another event were planned to close that section of Church (like Slide the City) it could be ...more »

Major Bike/Ped Lanes Downtown

As we encourage more bicycle and pedestrian traffic in downtown Huntsville, I'd like to see us create certain bikeways/pedways that could serve as major arteries for this type traffic. While railroad beds are a natural fit for this type of corridor, trying to get access to active rail rights-of-way can be challenging. Working with the city to create bike/pedestrian paths within existing autoways seems like a much better ...more »

Roads

Six lane Airport, Drake and Bob Wallace. Extend the Northern Bypass to Winchester and on to 72. Bridge and create a cloverleaf or half cloverleaf system at Dug Hill a 72. If you extend 565, people are going to get hurt. Extend the acceleration lane coming off Ryland Pike. Improve access by adding a single lane bridge veering off eat bound side a bridge over. Beg, grab, plead and make deals to push forward the Arsenal ...more »

The Need for Hiking in the Woods.

Huntsville has a high population of highly creative individuals of all ages and backgrounds. We need to nurture this innovativeness by providing hiking or biking trails through our forests. While it may seem obvious that a good hike through a forest or up a mountain can cleanse your mind, body, and soul, science is now discovering that hiking can actually change your brain… for the better! Aside from the almost instant ...more »
