The Big Picture

The BIG Picture’ is a comprehensive planning process for the City of Huntsville. Comprehensive plans are typically policy documents that express a community vision for growth and delineate a path for achieving that vision. Considerations run the gamut, including land use, transportation, parks and recreation, infrastructure, workforce development, education, quality of life initiatives, and economic development/diversification. A key component in a comprehensive planning effort is community outreach, and the BIG Picture seeks to be as broad and deep as possible in engaging the community.

November Program
