HUNSTVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Change a little here. Don't change anything. That's about the way the opinions always seem to fall when it comes to the Five Points area of Huntsville. Some people are thinking big changes.

"I'd like to see a nice water park for the kids, an amusement park," said Mae Frances Martin. "I think that would be nice and probably more eating places."

Others would like to see narrower streets, more bike lanes and walker-friendly sidewalks to boost Five Points' appearance and allure. That's what a lot of viewers have reported on See, Click, Fix. On Pratt Avenue, there are quite a few changes.

"Everything's looking good," said D'Angelo Rice. "New sidewalks. This little tree area over here. Everything's looking real nice."

I checked with Huntsville city officials, who said there are plans to continue improvements at Five Points. It's just a question of when they can pay for those in the capital budget.

Jimmy Jones worked for the city for 32 years. He even helped remodel some of the homes in Five Points.

"It's beautiful," said Jones. "They've done a lot of work, a lot of work. Even all the way down this side. There's a lot of changes, and it's more beautiful, and I like it. This is home."
