I am a public watcher interested in fixing issues as quickly as possible after they arise. I don't "fixes" that do not permanently address the problem, nor do I want the fix to take so long that it creates an issue of its own.

  • 216 Westside Square Huntsville, AL 35801 - Huntsville
    An individual to coordinate, organize and promote all events in or around downtown Huntsville in an effort to increase downtown commerce, downtown development and improve the community in which we live.
  • 9633 Dortmund Dr Huntsville, Alabama - Huntsville
    Section of sidewalk has not been replaced after it was removed.
  • 407 Holmes Ave Ne Huntsville, Alabama - Huntsville

    407 Holmes Avenue NE has a public sidewalk that is made of bricks and there are some areas where the bricks are not level creating a tripping hazard. 403 and 405 Holmes Avenue NE also have the same brick sidewalk.

    The city code of ordinances states the following:
    "No sidewalk shall be built of brick or of any material other than that prescribed by the Engineering Standards for Construction of Public Improvements (1991 edition) unless authorized by the city engineer."

    The city needs to remove the brick sidewalks at the properties on Holmes Avenue that have them and replace with poured in place concrete like the majority of the street has.

    Sec. 23-85. - Material for sidewalks.
    No sidewalk shall be built of brick or of any material other than that prescribed by the Engineering Standards for Construction of Public Improvements (1991 edition) unless authorized by the city engineer.
    (Code 1982, § 20-85)

  • 116 Jefferson St S Huntsville, AL 35801, USA - Huntsville
    Huntsville could open a "Huntsville's Own" Micro-brew drink/dining. With "Straight to Ale", "Olde Towne", and a few other locoal brews. More local stuff downtown.
  • 7500 Whitesburg Dr Huntsville, Alabama - Huntsville
    The only thing preventing this pole from falling into Whitesburg Dr is that the lines on the leaning pole are hitting the new pole. We know Huntsville Utilities can only move their lines. Why doesn't the city get AT&T, WOW & Comcast to move their lines?
  • 7590-7598 Old Madison Pike Nw Huntsville, AL, 35806, USA - Huntsville

    The crosswalk on Madison Pike at Slaughter Rd is missing and needs to be replaced.

    Following a recent repaving project on Slaughter, the crosswalk had to be removed but was never replaced. Crossing the street is dangerous enough without it. Can you re add the crosswalk?

    This appears to be within Hsv City limits.

  • 812 Rison Ave Ne Huntsville, Alabama - Huntsville
    There is junk/trash on lot at 812 Rison Avenue, this probably needs to go to Huntsville Community Development. Thank you!
  • 9741 Wallwood Dr Se Huntsville, Alabama - Huntsville
    Last year a contractor for AT&T dug a hole for their equipment next to the sidewalk which caused the gravel bed to fall into the hole. The contractor did not replace the gravel under the sidewalk. This year a contractor for Xfinity broke a water line install their cable. When Huntsville Utilities came to repair the line they had to dig on the other side of the same section of sidewalk where the AT&T contractor had dug. Now the entire section of sidewalk is slowing falling into the void.

    Big Spring Park Huntsville, Alabama - Huntsville
    Most large cities that I visit have dog bag stations at their parks. This encourages owners to pick up their waste and allows for citations when owners do not. I think Big Spring Park and other parks throughout town would benefit

    2711 Box Canyon Road Se Huntsville Alabama - Huntsville
    In October 2017 a driver texting ran over all the phone boxes in my front yard. I have called the city, AT&T, & Comcast. All want to pawn it off on the next guy and it still isn't corrected. Then the contractors for Google fiber came and laid their conduit. This cut the AT&T line so a temporary line is laying in the street and has been for months. They also cut the power to the street light. The city came and corrected this, but still left the mess of lines piled up in my yard nor has required anyone to come correct it. I don't know who else to contact.
  • 908 Southeast California Street Huntsville, Alabama - Huntsville
    The tennis courts at California Street Park need some attention. Leaves and debris stay on the courts year round. Mud washes onto the courts during heavy rain. The asphalt path from the parking lot has been raised by tree roots creating a tripping hazard. A simple fix for the courts would be to have the landscaping crew blow them off each time they mow the surrounding grass area.
