Approval sought for all-way stop sign in Carmel Valley

By Karen Billing

Solana Highlands Elementary School is seeking approval of an all-way stop sign to improve the safety of the students and community. The proposed placement of the stop signs would be at the intersection of Long Run and Candela, where a crosswalk is currently in place.

“This area has been unsafe for many years,” Solana Highlands Principal Jerry Jones said. “Having an all-way stop will slow traffic, create more visibility for our students and drivers, and create an overall safer environment for the community.”

The school hopes to have the item on the June 28 agenda at the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting. If anyone would like to weigh in on the issue, they are welcome to attend. The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at the Carmel Valley Library.
