On our street in the summer everyone has hanging baskets. Usually filled with annuals like petunias and impatiens. This year I would like to partake, they make the street look nice! Can I make a multi-season hanging basket? Can I make one where i can reuse the plants from one year to the next? Can hanging baskets be perennial?
I have irrigation so water isn't a problem, but my house does face north so there isn't much sunlight.

A lot of "annuals" are actually perennials. Tomatoes and peppers, for instance. They just can't handle frost. Bring them in, over winter, and you have a headstart on next year. Tomatoes should do well in a hanging basket, just let them sprawl! Grow some lettuce in another one. Sweet potatoes would be good to try.
Don't mess with me you fool! I'm cooking with gas! Here, read this tiny ad:
