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.

More Green Parks

Is there a way the city can build and/or promote more green parks with shade trees, flower beds, walking trails, etc?

 

When I search for parks in Huntsville, I basically only see ball parks. While not bad, these don't beautify the city.

 

To see how this has been done locally, check out Decatur's parks.

From the successes of the Green Street Market, the Sidewalk Arts Stroll, and the numerous parades and events, there are many to thank for this. It's been almost six years since I presented the following concept, so I thought with all the recent activity downtown, and the tireless efforts of so many, including the great work of the Arts Council, the downtown ...more »

Laser Show on West Side City Hall

I'd like to see a laser show similar to that at Stone Mt, GA, be done on the large west side of the City Hall Building. I envision it being sponsored on a weekly basis during the "outdoor" months by one of the major Huntsville corporations. A possible scenario could be: 1. Pre-Coulmbus Indians 2. John Hunt and pioneers 3. Cotton comes to Huntsville 4. Civil War 5. Reconstruction 6. Spanish American War and Buffaloe ...more »
