During the Public Input phase of creating the new Veterans Memorial Bridge, there also was discussion to create an adjacent Veterans Memorial Plaza, which would be on the northwest side of the bridge. The Veterans Memorial Plaza will provide a beautiful place for people to come and remember fallen veterans. It will also provide a location for local veteran organizations to host military ceremonies and celebrations.
The proposed concept for the new Veterans Memorial Plaza is estimated to be a $1.2 million project.
