Published on November 22, 2022
Want to weigh in on the future of Huntsville’s greenway system? Then, mark your calendar for the City of Huntsville and Land Trust of North Alabama public input meetings November 28-30.
The land trust and the city’s planning department will host a series of evening forums to engage the public in the greenway master plan. The purpose of the open days is to review past progress and plan for the next five years of the plan.
Greenways are essential to the City’s overall vision, promoting health and well-being, tourism, economic development, recreation and much more. Working with the Land Trust, the City is advancing its plan to build more greenways in our community.
“When it comes to greenways, every project is unique,” said Dennis Madsen, City Manager of Urban and Long Range Planning. “While the planning, design and construction of greenways involves many variables, we remain committed to providing these diverse and safe transportation and recreation options to the public.”
Citizens are invited to attend the following public consultation events:
- Monday, November 28, 5:30-7 p.m., Johnson Legacy Center, 6000 Cecil Fain Drive
- Tuesday, Nov. 29, 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m., South Huntsville Library, 7901-L Bailey Cove Road
- Wednesday, Nov. 30, 5:30 p.m.-7 p.m., Williams Middle School, 155 Barren Fork Blvd. SW
The City of Huntsville Greenway Master Plan reflects the community’s vision of a connected system of trails and greenways for the benefit of the public. Informed by The BIG Picture’s comprehensive planning process, the Greenway Master Plan is designed to connect Huntsville’s cultural heritage and natural beauty.
Huntsville adopted its first Greenways Master Plan in 2006 to guide the development of greenways in our community. Currently, there are approximately 73 miles of existing greenways and trails in the Huntsville area. The city has budgeted 44 new miles for construction by 2023.
