South Huntsville has been awarded an AARP Livable Community Challenge grant, the South Huntsville Main Business Association announced.

The grant is one of 159 awarded nationwide through AARP’s “quick action” grant program. The Huntsville Planning Department was instrumental in South Huntsville applying for the grant.

Funds from the grant will be used to produce more than 35 bicycle racks with the South Huntsville compass logo. Designed and created by Bruce Wendendorf, the racks will be placed in front of businesses and public places in South Huntsville.

The South Huntsville Main Business Association has partnered with Turner Construction to install the bike racks.

The racks will be installed from August to November.
