Feeding Our Homeless

Greetings Huntsvillians! Over the holidays, my father and I were talking about ways we can get food to our homeless. I understand and support the ideas and organizations that are already moving mountains in our city providing food and other resources for the homeless. However, I know there are some business *required* to throw away perfectly good food (especially buffet establishments) - employees aren't even allowed ...more »

International Farmers Market open daily

I would love to see a Farmers market that we can get local and international fruits, veggies and meats. A place where local co-ops can come daily as well. a lot of times the Farmer's Market events don't work with my schedule so if we had something open daily I could utilize it anytime

Let's Lunch Local Tweet

Utilizing the most appropriate form of technology for this task (Twitter, Facebook, etc.), and perhaps initiated by the city, food trucks and locally owned restaurants should put together an announcement hub of where they will be parked (trucks), if they are running a special benefiting charity/non-profits, or other special lunchtime events. I am thinking that young professionals and college students (especially if trucks ...more »

Add Restaurants, Oddity, Boutique Shops Downtown

Huntsville has done a decent job of increasing diversity of retail/recreation Downtown. There's still a lot that needs to happen for us to be come a "destination" city though. Huntsville could encourage more local (non-chain) restaurants to open up Downtown (especially mid-priced semi-casual restaurants that appeal to young professionals or young families.) A few more sports bars with a family atmosphere would be good ...more »

Brazillian restaurant

I like the idea of bringing a Brazilian or South American style restaurant to Huntsville. We have food from just about every continent, except South America is not represented very well. These are gaining in popularity everywhere, even cruise vacation ships. One special service is that the waiters bring fresh marinated roasted meat skewers right to your table.

Arts & Entertainment District

Using Spaces Downtown

The former Hale Furniture Store on Jefferson is a perfect example. The building has been empty for years. Rotting wood covers the windows. A green construction barrier (which is falling apart) blocks most of the sidewalk. Trash accumulates at the entrance. You get one chance at a first impression and THIS is what greets everyone driving into downtown Huntsville. It’s a shining example of what should NEVER be allowed. ...more »
