Madison, AL

Have been living here for abt 1 year now. Originally came from Florence AL, where i lived for most of my life. Most of the people i know from here commute into Huntsville or Decatur to work and go into Huntsville for entertainment or shopping. madison does have a wide variety of chain retail stores and chain restaurants. Most of what you can find on the US 72 side of town is mirrored on the I-565 side of town, except for the Walmart. Getting from the one side to the other is a pain and can take a very long time. The side of town that has the one High School also has an elementary school on the same road, and traffic coming from there can be horrendous during school hours. My major complaint abt this town would be the trash pickup and the recycling program. The recycling program is subpar-they won't pick up prebagged recyclables, it has to go in the little blue recycle bucket, and they will not recycle cardboard. if they don't pick it up, they throw it into the trash can. In Florence the recycling could be in any type of can as long as it was marked recycle, and they took anything that could be recycled.

Only One High School - 1/9/2007

This city has experienced uncontrolled growth. Plenty of new elementary and middle schools, only one high school. From all indications, it is already over crowded and the city planners have yet to decide on building a new one.
