Sidewalks for Sections of Westgate Parkway
It will soon be a safer walk for students in schools along Westgate Parkway in Dothan.
City Commissioners approved Northstar Engineering as the consulting service for Dothan's Westgate Parkway sidewalk project today.
The project calls for sidewalks to be put in between Morris Slingluff Elementary and Northview High Schools.
Slingluff Elementary Principle Jeff Torrence spoke at Tuesday's commission meeting- saying sidewalks would promote health and better safety for the students.
Additionally... He says the Elementary School has been collaborating more frequently with Northview HS.
He hopes a sidewalk will encourage students to walk between the schools.
All commissioners voted yes aside from District 5 Commissioner Beth Kenward.
She believes engineering projects should remain in house.
