Huntsville has a high population of highly creative individuals of all ages and backgrounds. We need to nurture this innovativeness by providing hiking or biking trails through our forests. While it may seem obvious that a good hike through a forest or up a mountain can cleanse your mind, body, and soul, science is now discovering that hiking can actually change your brain… for the better! Aside from the almost instant ...more »
It would be wonderful for people on government assistance to be able to get a job. Most people feel much better getting a pay check rather than a government check. I would like to see private funds available to help these people find a job. The reasons I can think of for getting a job are: education, personal hygiene, dress, good teeth, resume, problem solving skills, self-esteem, motivation, and others. If we could ...more »
I like the "art" around the Art Museum and the new"art light" soon to be completed downtown and others. I also like the hanging flowerers downtown in the warmer season. I think it would be a good idea to expand on these ideas downtown and the area around Huntsville. Driving into Huntsville on 72 does not look appealing in many areas especially in Madison. It doesn't look much better on Memorial. Some kind of art, ...more »
Could this be done here?
I do like the new direction signs in the downtown area but would love to have all street signs converted to LED signs in the downtown area These are outstanding at night!
Middle school and high school students have many good unique, creative ideas that adults just don't think about. At Eglin Airforce Base in Fort Walton Beach, Florida local fifth grade students worked on a project called Marsville. The problem was to come up with ways a colony on mars would grow food, communicate, get water, dispose of waste etc. Students would gain knowledge through research. Speakers were brought ...more »
We have many beautiful and varied churches in the downtown area. To help us appreciate the different building architectures and understand the various religious beliefs, a guided tour of the churches would be educational for local citizens and tourists. Who better than the head of each church giving the tours weekly or monthly. Who knows, church attendance might increase in Huntsville and a better appreciation of others. ...more »
Even though the idea doesn't get many votes I still think it is a good idea to build a stadium downtown Huntsville if done correctly. First, it has to make money. Second people need to support it. The stadium could have a solar footprint. Put a solar roof over the stadium and use the field all year. Flexible, lightweight fabric could extend the possibilities for solar power and fit in places not practical for large ...more »
On my way to church each Thursday I notice that we have a roofed area just before the Veterans park under I 565. I thought it would be nice to make a basketball court that would be out of the weather for anybody to play. Even better if we could connect it to a bike trail and add lights. Of course solar panels and LED bulbs.
Other areas of 565 might also be used.
Read an article recently that a company can tear down and rebuild an overpass in 48 hours using new technology and new construction ideas. This could solve Huntsville construction nightmares for drivers!
I believe it would be nice for Huntsville to have Thomas as its Patron saint. Thomas was an architect, builder, and engineer which is what Huntsville is all about. St. Thomas is best known for his role in verifying the Resurrection of his Master. Thomas' unwillingness to believe that the other Apostles had seen their risen Lord on the first Easter Sunday earned him the title of "doubting Thomas." Eight days later, on ...more »
I think it would be a wonderful idea for the City of Huntsville to establish a Share and Care via a smartphone application or by other means. Maybe a young person needs a room and a lonely senior might have one available for rent. Maybe someone needs a ride. Maybe a young mother needs some clothes for her children and someone might have clothes that her children have grown out of, Maybe a single mother needs someone ...more »
