Residential construction is happening all over the City of Fruitland as subdivisions are becoming more and more plentiful throughout the community.
A recent phone interview with City Clerk Rick Watkins revealed just how steady this growth has been. Watkins stated that since 1990, the city has grown, on average, 2% to 3% per year.
At Fruitland’s Nov. 11 City Council meeting, the residential growth spurt was discussed as it was revealed that since Nov. 1, the number of houses built so far this year is 63.
These homes are spread out across six different subdivisions in various phases of development.
Watkins also mentioned that one of the action items from the most recent City Council Meeting related directly to Fruitland’s building boom. This was the request to begin early excavation of the new Rivers Edge Subdivision.
Shannon Luoma from Solid Frame, LLC, presented this request to the Council, which was unanimously approved.
