CRESTVIEW — Curbing Stillwell Boulevard between Royal Street and Rainbow Lane also should curb residents’ concerns about Walker Elementary School visitors parking on their lawns.

Currently, upon drop-off or pick-up, parents who drive their children to school often park in front of homes facing the school on Stillwell’s north side.

A multi-phase plan to resolve the problem will go into effect within a week, County Commissioner Wayne Harris said during a Thursday morning meeting with residents Don and Becky Hennerberg and Holly Meadows.

Meadows and the Hennerbergs said the practice is not only an inconvenience for them, but also is hazardous for children who sometimes dart between vehicles to cross the street.

After the residents brought their concerns to Harris, he met with county Public Works and sheriff's office officials to devise a solution.

"I'm very excited and optimistic," Meadows said. "Kids will be kids. This should keep them safer."
