2017 Garage Sales


The Master Plan was recently designed for the area at MacArthur and South Main (see photos below).

It's amazing to think of everything accomplished on the South Main Complex in 2016. A collaborative effort between Cheney Recreation Commission, the City of Cheney and numerous citizens and volunteers have contributed to the following projects.

1. A master plan for the land was developed through public input by LK Architecture. 
2. A playground grant was secured by Cheney Recreation for $25,000 to purchase a $50,000 play structure.
3. Dirt work was completed on the north section for future multi-use fields. 
4. Future multi-use fields were seeded in the late fall with the help of a donor.
5. 80 trees were donated by ICTrees and planted by volunteers.
6. A grant was secured for $50,000 to build an additional ball field.
7. Expansion of the parking lot began.

We can't wait to see what exciting things happen in 2017!
