Park will shine brighter with new lights



Fruit Valley — Fruit Valley Park will be a bit brighter later this year once two new lights are built behind the community center. The Vancouver-Clark Parks and Recreation Department is paying for the lights and installation with a newly awarded $30,000 Community Development Block Grant. The Vancouver Police Department and Fruit Valley Neighborhood Association helped the parks department pick the spot based on what they considered an “immediate need,” according to the latest Fruit Valley Neighborhood Association newsletter. The project is expected to be completed in late summer or fall.
