TOP COMMENT: A second south-north road is necessary
Crestview is in terrible need of a second south-north road around the city and with ramps connecting to I-10.
The issue of the tanker that turned over at the Highway 85/I-10 ramp is only one example of drivers being trapped in traffic for hours and those of us who had no other way to get to work or for critical doctor's appointments.
I have seen the shutdown of Highway 85 due to accidents many times in the past, and many times the shutdown is the result of no more than just a fender bender.
It's way past due to start constructing another N-S highway.
Other cities in Florida have found funding for new roads through state and federal government grants; therefore, there is no reason or excuse that the city leaders of Crestview can't also get the funding required to build a new road.
I had heard of past rumors that there are landowners agreeing to donate their land for a new S-N road around Crestview.
Whatever happened to that offer, if it was more than just a rumor?
Leave Crestview's public safety dispatch as is
The county dispatch system is having problems right now. The maintenance company is still trying to fix it, and has been all week long (when this was written).
Chief Traylor is right in leaving his system like it is. There are some places where money shouldn't be pinched and bean counters should be banned. Public safety is one of them.
There is a difference between spending taxpayer money properly and trying to save a few nickels here and there.
Praise for Crestview's Family Strong Fun Day
I love it when a community pulls together to save something too important to let slip away. The YMCAs across America are struggling! Let us not be witness to another great organization going by the wayside.
A suggestion for Twin Hills Park
Can they make a shaded non-splash pad (for the) park for the summer? Sometimes, it would be nice to go play and not get wet.
