LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Countryview Estates needs representation

Published: Thursday, March 28, 2013 at 07:26 PM.

Living in Countryview for the better part of 20 years, I want better representation for my neighborhood.

Countryview has to have become a sizeable tax base for the city of Crestview. We deserve sidewalks out here. This neighborhood has outgrown its one-time small community charm.

Now, when my family takes walks in Countryview, we do so at our peril. I've been required, several times, to jump out of the way of speeders driving too close to me (when) walking alongside the street.

Sidewalks would provide appropriate safety to walking families out here. During my daily walks, I've noticed the deterioration of Northview Drive and Villacrest Drive. The streets are crumbling alongside the edges. This does not give me the feeling that Crestview is overly concerned about us.

I've noticed our neighbor to the south building sidewalks alongside College Boulevard out in the country, providing a safe walking area. Crestview can provide dog parks, and an excellent walking area in the northern part of our city.

I want better representation for Countryview.
