There is still a considerable amount of available land within Research Park that will never fully be developed for office space. Attracting/developing an outdoor adventure park within this business park would exude true diversity for Huntsville. Imagine this central location so close to Redstone, Bridgestreet as well as all the surrounding cities within Research Park to offer a first of its kind to include the modern ...more »
What is your favorite BIG Picture idea for Huntsville
Another huge old tree was cut down last week, this one on the city easement on Randolph, in Old Town. Marc Byers, the city forester, estimated its age at roughly 150 years. No doubt it had become a liability issue, given its age and condition. But this is happening with a frequency that is alarming and it causes some of us a lot of concern because there doesn't seem to be anything near proportional in terms of planting ...more »
Many people would enjoy an overlook of Huntsville along the Cecil B Ashburn Drive or from the West End of the Landtrust Parking area. Overviews of mountains and Cities are inspiring to the soul, help for obtaining personal orientation of the city, and in providing a place for tourist and locals to see the beauty of Huntsville. I have often admired the climb up Cecil B Ashburn where the trees had been cleared and provided ...more »
"Colored Fountain Show dances to choreographed musical arrangements that observers would love to sing and dance along to. In addition, during hot days when closer, the fountains gentle mist will provide a cooling experience!" This would be an awesome mesmerizing and highly entertaining attraction for all. Small canopied cart/wagons selling cold drinks, snacks and Arts and Crafts would make the experience complete!
Huntsville continues to grow and expand in all directions and it seems at a faster pace in the last couple of years. Huntsville has done a very good job creating green spaces and needs to continue to do so. I believe we need to get creative with our green spaces adding art, culture, beauty, and versatility. I believe we need to connect all of our bike trails and connect these trails to neighborhoods for easy access. ...more »
Why can't or won't Huntsville try to bing in a premier top tier theme and or a water park? I think the "Space City" project back in the 60s still has a tight hold on some folks around here. As many of the early rocket launches exploded and failed on the launch pad, that didn't stop us from making it to Tranquility Base. To the folks of Ceder Point and Schlitterbaun, please come to Huntsville a check us out. Same goes ...more »
I would be cool to see regularly published statistics on Transit Ridership, Percent of Trips to work, shopping and recreational destinations that way we could gauge how effective some of our transportation expenditures are. By the way, do we even know what percent of work commute trips are made by single occupancy, carpooling, transit, cycling, and walking? https://www.citylab.com/transportation/2019/01/commuting-to-work-data-car-public-transit-bike/580507/?utm_source=newsletter&silverid=%25%25RECIPIENT_ID%25%25&utm_campaign=citylab-daily-newsletter&utm_medium=email ...more »
This intersection should be redesigned. South-bound traffic either turning into the entrance to the Walmart neighborhood store or east onto Oakwood gets mixed up because the turn lanes are so close to each other, causing frequent confusion and fender-benders, specially during evening rush hour.
Suggestion is for a combination Gas Station (or small truck stop) and Fast food restaurant / Convenience store be placed on the corner of Bob Wade/MLK Jr. Hwy and Pulaski Pike. The Northern Bypass project from Pulaski pike to US 231/431 will be started soon (we hope) and that will increase traffic through here considerably. Additionally there is already the Toyota Plant and under construction are Aerojet Rocketdyne and ...more »
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,
