Memorial Park WWI Memorial


Project Status:Design

Project Overview: The City seeks to develop a new design for a new WWI Memorial at Memorial Park. It is the intent of the city to have the design fabricated and installed in 2019.  

Project Background: A WWI Memorial, consisting of small plaques by trees, has existed at Memorial Park for over 90 years. Overtime, many of these plaques have been damaged, destroyed or are now missing. Multiple master plans have been conducted on the park over the past 7 years, and each has called for a new WWI memorial. Although a new park master plan is forthcoming, past citizen comments have been clear that a new WWI memorial should be a component of the park.

Public Engagement: During the planning phase, the public is invited to provide ideas and weigh in on concepts and themes for the new memorial.

Public Engagement Opportunities: Planned public input opportunities have been completed.

Budget: $41,000  

Funding Source: 1/2 and 1/2 tourism tax 

Estimated Completion Date: 2019
