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.

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.
