Saturday’s highlights

Here we are on a slightly damp Monday morning, starting another work week. If you missed taking a look at Saturday's Valley Voice I've got a few highlights for you. Business is, well, blooming at the Pumpkin Patch community garden in Millwood, according to reporter Lisa Leinberger. Residents can rent a raised bed to raise vegetables and there's a section of the garden earmarked for the food bank. Last year more than 500 pounds of food was donated.

Another local market has sprung up in the Ponderosa neighborhood. Correspondent Valerie Putnam had some details on the Ponderosa Market at 4120 S. Bowdish. It's open on Tuesdays, which means it doesn't conflict with the Millwood Market on Wednesdays or the Liberty Lake Market on Saturdays.

The Spokane Valley City Council had its first look at the draft goals and policies for the Shoreline Master Program last week. The goals and policies set the direction of the shoreline regulations that must be included in the state mandated plan. Some council members objected to portions of the draft document. The discussion will continue.

Coming on Saturday

We have a few interesting things coming up in Saturday's Valley Voice. Some members of the Spokane Valley City Council had some harsh words this week for a draft version of the goals and policies to be included in the city's Shoreline Master Program. The plan would regulate all shoreline areas in the city.

Reporter Lisa Leinberger checked in with the Pumpkin Patch community garden in Millwood to see how things are growing. It's a little early in the season for any pumpkins, though. In that same vein, a new farmers market has opened in the Ponderosa neighborhood and we'll have information on that for anyone who wants to stop by and browse.
