Not one word from me on this one, I got this from the "Bus Stops Here" section of HSV Times Online.

Staring Thursday night, that big, ugly power substation located near the corner of the Heart of Huntsville Drive and Monroe Street will be made beautiful thanks to colored lights.

I learned from my wife that this is most likely not out of the city budget. Big Spring Partners has their own money to play with.

Peter, I gathered that from the article. I think what makes this so humorous is the Idea.

Plus it is tied into the "downtown development group" .

I feel Revitalized and Privatized.

That's fucking awesome.
