Welcome to The BIG Picture: Our Study, Vision & Plan for the City of Huntsville!

The City of Huntsville’s comprehensive master plan, The BIG Picture, directs the future of economic growth, neighborhood redevelopment, parks and greenways, transportation, and quality of life for all of our citizens.

The BIG Picture developed in three phases:

  • Our Study – Providing research, demographics and economic data to determine who we are and how we compare with other cities across the nation.
  • Our Vision – Engaging citizens in a variety of workshops, lectures and online forums about their ideas, dreams and desires for a better and sustainable Huntsville.
  • Our Plan – Formulating a transparent, breathable plan with the ability to guide funding and policy decisions. This plan will be continuously updated each year to best reflect changing conditions.
