Huntsville PARC Trail Survey

The City of Huntsville is working on plans for a new urban trail (greenway) in the downtown area and is looking for public input.

The Pedestrian Access and Redevelopment Corridor (PARC) will be a 1.5-mile pedestrian/bike trail, adjacent to the Pinhook Creek and Spring Branch, from north of Holmes Avenue to south of Memorial Parkway.

The PARC trail is a public use plan, and the City is seeking feedback from as many stakeholders as possible through a brief survey, available through October 8.

Questions range from the expected usage of the PARC trail to ideas for the future. As outlined in The BIG Picture comprehensive master plan, this information will be integrated into the final PARC trails plan, which will include an analysis of trail connectivity, assessment of opportunities to expand the network, maintenance plan, and a better trail marking system.

Additional public meetings and other activities related to the development of the trails master plan will be announced.
