City Asks For Park Master Plan Feedback
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Plans on the table for a 100 million dollar master plan at the John Hunt Park still need one thing, your input.
The City of Huntsville’s Sports Commission and Departments of Planning and Parks and Recreation are asking for input from Huntsville citizens. Thursday night they held an open house where residents could view the plans and make suggestions.
A second public forum will take place at the Dr. Richard Showers, Sr. Recreation Center, Nov. 18 at 2:00 p.m., at 4600 Blue Springs Road.
A final public hearing on the Master Plan will take place at the Planning Commission meeting in City Council Chambers on November 27.
The 378-acre property south of downtown was the city’s first airport. Mayor Tommy Battle has proposed selling 25 acres near the Airport Road-Memorial Parkway intersection to raise money for the $100 million park project.
The city has also created a website, www.imaginehuntsville.com, to gather feedback on the John Hunt Park plans.
