Before I do the highlights from the most recent Valley Voice on Saturday, I thought it might be helpful to post some quick hits on a few stories published in the Voice while I was driving for endless hours through Montana. (Lots of mountains. And cows.)
April 2: I had an update on changes to the planned Indiana Avenue extension project and details on the construction plans for Greenacres Park. There was also a story on efforts by the Spokane Valley Fire Department to get land they own at Barker and Euclid cleaned up after the Barker Bridge contractor has been using it for storage for years. Reporter Lisa Leinberger had a look at the first ever drama put on by students at Contract Based Education, a West Valley alternative high school.
April 7: In my absence Lisa Leinberger attended the Spokane Valley City Council and wrote about the votes to approve the improved Indiana Avenue extension project and the construction bid for Greenacres Park. The council also voted to add planning commissioner Arne Woodard to their ranks. Lisa also had another story on the East Valley bond (many people have probably already received their ballots).
