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,
So recently I have learned a lot about how public transportation can actually solve a lot of issues with poverty and traffic! As Huntsville keeps growing, I've thought that we need more roads, but the truth is that more efficient public transportation is going to solve the issues of the traffic that we all hate, and it can actually help a lot of families in our community that struggle to own a car. The more roads, the ...more »
Huntsville has the number #1 tourist attraction in the state of Alabama . What if we could have another large scale tourist attraction downtown? That could boost new and existing hotels and also generate new commerce downtown. I would like to encourage everyone to envision a new downtown attraction. Something that could move the city up to the top of tourist destinations. Two possibilities could be a Space needle or ...more »
Displaying “Drive Friendly” signs and bill boards, posted especially along high traffic routes and marked on city vehicles, could possibly ease traffic conflicts. A few years ago we saw the “Drive Friendly” signs on a trip through Texas; it may have been psychological, but it just seemed the Texas drivers, for the most part, were friendly; it made us want to drive that way too. It seems “friendliness may beget friendliness. ...more »
The new John Hunt Festival Field would be a great venue for music, "June Jam" type shows.. Promoters should take note. These type shows drew very large ticket-paying audiences and provided top-notch entertainment.
Anyone heard anything lately on the Constellation project?
I see dirt being moved occasionally, but nothing more.
