Two years after buying a huge chunk of waterfront property along the Tennessee River, the city of Huntsville is taking steps to develop it into something useful for the public.

The 134-acre, oblong tract stretches west from the twin Whitesburg bridges to near the boundary of Redstone Arsenal. When the city bought the land in May 2004, city leaders talked of building a mile-long greenway that could continue under the bridges to the Ditto Landing Marina.

The land sat dormant until recently when it was finally annexed into the city. Thursday night, the City Council set a public hearing for Aug. 24 on a proposal to zone the land Commercial Recreation C-5 District.
