County curbs Walker Elementary School neighbors' parking concerns

The first phase — erecting signage that prohibits parking, standing or idling in front of residents' homes — will probably be in place next week, Harris said.

The second phase — constructing curbing between Royal and Rainbow — will be completed at the beginning of Thanksgiving week when the school closes for fall break.

The curb will form a barrier preventing cars from parking on residents' lawns, and the signs will clearly explain the "no parking" rule, Harris said.

"That way, there's no doubt," he said. "When they put that curb up, anybody who tries to go up there is going to lose the bottom of their cars."

Future improvements include widening the turns to Royal and Rainbow, and adding more clearly marked pedestrian crossings.

A sidewalk will eventually be laid on the north side of Stillwell between the two side streets, allowing students and school visitors to easily access the crosswalks without walking on residents' property.
