New county courthouse & new H'ville city hall

Build the new courthouse, new city hall, and new parking facility adjacent to the Municipal Public Safety and Municipal Court building at Wheeler Ave. This would create a government complex with everything conveniently located in one place. I'm calling it "Metro Plaza."

Bike Lanes on Pulaski Pike

Like with Whitesburb Drive, Pulaski Pike also has rides, an uninterrupted sidewalks need to be installed on its length from near the North Bypass south to Holmes Avenue. A significant stretch does have sidewalks, but I don't know if they're configured for bike paths...

PARKING

I love that downtown is growing but I have concerns about the lack of parking. This issue should be at top of the list if planning on bringing in more business downtown

Bike lanes on Whitesburg Drive

Please consider adding bike lanes and uninterrupted sidewalks on both sides of Whitesburg Drive. More and more cyclists, joggers and walkers are using Whitesburg Drive even at peak traffic times. This is a major thoroughfare with high speeds, and combining bikes with car traffic is not safe. The sidewalks are interrupted in places along Whitesburg and pedestrians often step into the street in places where there is no ...more »

Build a zoo

I love going to the botanical gardens, especially after the renovations. And Alabama's number one tourist attraction is the Space and Rocket Center. To provide for our citizens and leverage the tourism for the Space and Rocket Center, I would like to see a Zoo developed near the botanical gardens and Space and Rocket Center. At one point I thought I heard some of the land the arsenal has may be turned over to the city ...more »

Temporary employment for homeless

Can't remember if somebody has posted about this before, but what about giving temporary employment to the homeless, possibly under the city? They can then help with beautifying the city, gardening, picking up litter, etc. Here's an example of what another city has done along this line: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/inspired-life/wp/2016/08/11/this-republican-mayor-has-an-incredibly-simple-idea-to-help-the-homeless-and-it-seems-to-be-working/ ...more »

Urban whitewater park

Time to get serious about truly making HSV a travel and outdoor destination! TN, GA and NC know how to attract travelers, so why doesn't AL other than the coast. New shoppes and restaurant are great, but they are NOT unique. I recommend an Urban Whitewater Park to provide an array of activities, similar to OKC or NC. Ropes course, climbing walls, zip lines, hiking/biking trails, tubing, rafting, canoeing, kayaking. Area ...more »

Put the islands back in Big Spring Park

I have had several requests from friends regarding the recent renovation of Big Spring Park downtown. All of them want the islands put back into the park, for a variety of reasons. It gives the birds a home, where they can be safe away from human populations when they want. Also, it makes the park more interesting, beautiful, and enjoyable.

Road names

Is it possible to change Research Park Blvd back to Rideout Rd or even MLK Blvd and carry it all the way through to the parkway. See if Bob wade and Countess can be dropped or the name moved somewhere else. Add in a few others as well. For instance, Airport Rd. From the Triana Blvd. It is Johnson, Airport, Carl T. Jones, Bailey Cove and Green Cove. I get the fact when it was built most of it wasn't connected and ...more »

Skyscrapers.

The biggest building in downtown is the Regions Center, but that's not big enough. Mobile actually has less people as of this year than Huntsville does, but they have many buildings that are tall, including one that is over 700 feet tall. If we're going to be the biggest city in the state, shouldn't we look like it? The City Hall that's going to be destroyed and moved soon is in a location that would be perfect to build ...more »
