Huntsville Planning Commission Approves John Hunt Park Master Plan at Nov. 20 Meeting


City of Huntsville FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November, 21, 2012

(Huntsville, AL)—On Tuesday, Nov. 20, the Huntsville Planning Commission voted unanimously to approve plans for the revitalization of John Hunt Park in central Huntsville. The Master Plan calls for tree-lined walking, jogging and biking paths, additional tennis courts, a multi-purpose indoor facility, a splash park, amphitheatre and more for the 387 acre park.

Huntsville citizens have been providing their input on the park plan on the community forum website, www.ImagineHuntsville.com for over a month. The website has generated close to 3,000 votes, 235 comments, 440 overall users and 56 ideas. Huntsville citizens also had the opportunity to suggest new ideas and share their opinion on the plan at two public forums held in November.

“I couldn’t be more excited about the valuable input we’ve received on the John Hunt Park Master plan through both Imagine Huntsville and our public forums,” said Mayor Tommy Battle. “I’m looking forward to seeing the plan unfold. This area has the potential to be a vibrant, central park that all of our citizens can enjoy.”

Marie Bostick, the Manager of Planning Administration, explained that the development of the Master Plan was a team effort with the Sports Commission, Department of Parks and Recreation, Department of Planning and the public, all playing important roles. “Our team has improved upon the 1993 John Hunt Park Master Plan, and we have kept an eye on the things that will most benefit Huntsville citizens,” Bostick said.

The final report on the most popular ideas submitted on www.ImagineHuntsville.com can be found here.

Stay tuned for Mayor Battle’s next discussion topic on Imagine Huntsville coming this December!
