There was still some clean up following the demolition of an uninhabitable house in Fruitvale last week. The village intends to transform the lot into a green space that will likely house picnic tables and have a good view of Creekside Community Park.

Vacant home makes way for green space

The Village of Fruitvale demolished an old house they owned last week and are planning to transform the grounds into a green space.

Demo day was a big hit for Fruitvale residents who were pleased to see a community eyesore wiped out to make way for new green space.

The Village of Fruitvale demolished an old house they owned last week and are planning to transform the grounds across from Creekside Community Park into a green space.

“I think people were happy to see it demolished because it was sitting there boarded up for four or five years now,” explained Lila Cresswell, village chief administrative officer.
