Sustainable Huntsville

While Huntsville has a Sustainability plan of some sorts (most people don't know we have one), it does not capture the full range of topics that should be covered in a sustainability plan for an upcoming major city. HSV has an opportunity to be apart of real change that positively impacts our city. Cities like Atlanta, Nashville, Ashville, and Orlando all have master plans that involve urban planning, social equity, ...more »

Properly timed lights

Has Huntsville is growing and bringing in new businesses it is bringing in new housing, which means more traffic. I think it is time for Huntsville to considered breaking up with its love for red lights and manage traffic flow with timed lights instead of sensors on major thru ways. An example is if I leave downtown on Pratt and continue on University doing the speed limit I should be able to make each light green, ...more »

3D printing makerspace that is free for everyone!

We are fortunate to have several makerspaces around Huntsville now, but the 3D printers are restricted or privately owned. I am a part of the 3D printing Club of Huntsville, and our overall goal is to have a makerspace that is free for anyone of all ages to use. If you are interested in our cause, Give us a thumbs up! For more information on this, or if you are just generally interested in our group, please visit our ...more »

Emma's Tea Room replaced by Jacks rumor

Many thanks to the Planning Department for coming out on a rainy Thursday night to discuss Five Points.

 

FYI...there is a rumor afloat in the Five Points area that Emma's Tea Room will be replaced with a Jacks Fast Food. As this was not discussed at the Planning meeting and your entire presentation was about high quality development I hate to see such rumors persist.

Please provide the facts.

 

thank you

Curt

New to Huntsville and proud to call it home.

I have only been living in Huntsville for 6 months now and I have loved every minute of it. I have lived in Georgia in the city and also other parts of Alabama in cities as well, but i can honestly say that Huntsville is truly amazing. It is not only a pretty city but it always has something going on for the entire family. Personally I like going to Big Springs with my wife and our dog just to watch the ducks and have ...more »

Huntsville App.

I think a Huntsville App would be fantastic for tourists and locals. Let's say we are walking by the Art Museum and want to know more about it. We see a sign in front of the museum which gives directions to the App and tells us to put #1 on the App and zoom there is a video and explanation on what to see with costs and hours. Next, we see a sign which indicates The Big Spring Park and we learn about the highlights ...more »

Affordable housing

We have "issues" with landlord/tenant relations in some areas. Is it possible to stand up a page on our city website, maybe in Community Development, covering information like this: http://www.seattle.gov/housing/renters Do we need solutions for affordable housing (rents at 30% of median income) close to downtown? What's involved with setting up incentives for affordable housing that isn't Housing Authority managed? ...more »

VBC

I think the exterior of the VBC(Propst Arena) looks Amazing. I think if we are looking into the future we should think about maybe expanding by a few thousands seats, completely renovating the interior(new seats, real jumbotron, new locker rooms, etc.) and replace the dome that has been there forever. It is an eyesore. Sometimes I feel like we just patch things up. A complete renovation would be nice. It is asking for ...more »

Lowell Improvements

I’d really love to see mixed use along Lowell where the older Lowell Professional Complex sits. It’s a wide street that could have a promenade, turning the drainage canal into a canal. Putting existing medical offices above storefronts and restaurants it’s really a missed link between the Blossomwood neighborhood and downtown and could be an anchor for that end of downtown/The Medical District/Blossomwood, not unlike ...more »
