The basement meeting room at the Spokane Valley Library was packed last night as people told the city and the Spokane County Library District what they would like to see in an expanded Balfour Park. The city is partnering with the library district to expand the park and build a library on land across from the old University City Mall. Everyone seemed pretty excited about a new park. People were turned loose with markers to draw what they wanted to see in the park on maps of the site. There was nearly unanimous support for features like a farmers market, walking paths, a veterans memorial, a picnic shelter and a reading garden. Check out my story in Thursday's Valley Voice for full details.
