    I'm not sure, but I would guess that 5 Points/Old Town is one of the densest areas in Huntsville. It's also (at least east of California) one of the most affordable for young professionals and families. As a result, it could easily be one of the most vibrant, walkable areas of Huntsville, but it seems that there are power poles growing from every crack in the sidewalk, where sidewalks can be found.

    Also, none of the buildings in the area (with the exceptions of Star Market and 1892) have been improved lately. Landlords should be encouraged (read: incentivized) to upgrade their facilities. Ideally, buildings would be 2 or more stories with small setbacks and provide, in some cases, apartment living (like the main street in Providence).

    Further, I would personally love to see California turn into a 2 lane road with parallel parking and bike lanes between Randolph and Beirne. That, coupled with sidewalk improvements, would go a long way towards creating a pedestrian-friendly environment in the area of Huntsville that would be most receptive to it.

    Create an Amtrak, commuter/regional rail station to allow for passenger transportation to Atlanta, Birmingham, Nashville and other areas where Huntsvillians regularly travel to. It would also become an opportunity for visitors to arrive in the Downtown and enhance the amount of public activity in the city. The current Historic Depot and C&VB could be integrated into the design.

  • Cleveland Street - Huntsville
    By expanding the skateboard park in downtown Huntsville, tourism will increase by traveling skateboarders and their families. Also, paving the parking lot between the skateboard park and the Huntsville dog park will help keep vehicles from having pebble damage.
