Dear Fruita Community,

100,000 paid visits and counting! In less than a half a year of operations, the Fruita Community Center has been

very popular – we actually like to say ‘well-loved’. We are extremely pleased that the community, not just Fruita but

the Grand Valley, has come out to swim, play basketball, or take an exercise class. Staff at the FCC will continue

to work toward providing you with a clean and safe facility as well as a great experience. We want to make sure

you continue to use this fabulous facility.

Because the FCC has been ‘well-loved’ there are many nicks and dings throughout the facility that are in need of

repair. Because of that and the need to perform some deep cleaning, the Fruita Community Center will be closed

for a week right after Labor Day, September 6 th – 11 th . Staff and contractors are scheduled to re-finish floors,

clean deck drains and gutters, dust rafters and vents, repair and repaint walls and generally bring the facility

back to an original state of excellence. Please bear with us as we perform these maintenance activities during

that week.

It’s not all just about the FCC, two new parks have opened in Fruita during the last year as well. The Fruita Riverfront

Park is home to a new 18-hole disc golf course and will host the Colorado State Championship Tournament in

October. The disc golf course starts at the Snooks Bottom Open Space parking lot.

Also, constructed this year is the Fruita Bike Park located just north of the Colorado River and on the East side of

highway 340 in the Red Cliffs sub-division. The bike park contains beginner and advanced pump tracks, dirt jump

area, and a skills trail. This is phase one of two phases for the construction of the Fruita Bike Park. Next year we

hope to improve upon the park by installing a shelter and picnic benches in the park.

It is always our goal to give the Fruita community facilities and programs they can be proud to say are theirs. Get

out and enjoy the great recreation in Fruita!

Sincerely,

Ture Nycum

and building materials for new home construction and remodels.

In addition, Fruita residents pay higher sales tax on their utility

bills. The resident discount is intended to offset the additional taxes

that Fruita residents pay. Please remember sales and use taxes are
