Happy 4th of July
As we celebrate Independence Day, we also have a great deal to celebrate in our community. The City recently went to the bond market to retire debt and borrow $140 million for capital projects, at an unbelievably low interest rate because of our top triple A credit score. As a result, we will be investing more money in our parks, greenways, and public amenities.
Fundraisers are making progress for the new library on Bailey Cove, and if you haven't had a chance to participate, I encourage you to support this important project. This new facility will serve as a learning center and technology-rich lab for our residents.
Meanwhile, the Alabama Department of Transportation and Reed Contractors are working expeditiously on South Parkway construction. By December, the access roads will be complete, and construction will move to the center lanes.
Coming later this month, the City's Planning department will unveil results from public input for The Big Picture comprehensive master plan. They will present a touring exhibit of the outcomes (your vision of Huntsville's future), and we look forward to hosting several opportunities in our southeast neighborhoods for you to review the master plan. We will notify you of dates and locations.
