Today’s highlights

It looks like this might be the last sunny Thursday we have in a while, so let's dive in to some highlights from today's Valley Voice. The Spokane Valley City Council voted Tuesday to buy just over eight acres of land at Sprague and Herald from businessman Jack Pring. The city is partnering with the Spokane County Library District, which plans to build a new library on a portion of the site if a planned construction bond passes. The city plans to use its portion to expand Balfour Park.

New sidewalks are going in near Pasadena Park Elementary and reporter Lisa Leinberger has the story. The project is being paid for with a Safe Routes to School grant. Reporter Pia Hallenberg spoke to some teens who plan to sleep outside in cardboard boxes as part of a homelessness awareness project. Teens are being asked to collect pledges to benefit Family Promise of Spokane, Shalom Ministries and Mission Community Outreach Center.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department board of commissioners is under new leadership after the resignation of commission chairman Monte Nesbitt. Former vice-chairman Kolby Hanson has taken over the leadership role.
