SeaTac community meeting for Veterans Memorial set for July 17
information from City of SeaTac
On Wednesday, July 17, from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at the SeaTac Community Center (13735 24th Avenue South, SeaTac), John Barker, Landscape Architect from Forrest Gardens, LLC, will share several conceptual designs with the community for our new Veterans Memorial. The project will be completed in time for Veterans Day on November 11, 2019 and commemorated with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
The new memorial will pay tribute to our military veterans for their service. It will incorporate engraved commemorative tile pavers as a lasting remembrance ofthe ones who have selflessly served our country.
The purpose of this meeting is to educate the community on the project, receive community input, review the designs and estimated timeline, and take a look at fundraising efforts. More information about purchasing a tile paver to honor a service member will be available at the meeting, with examples of the tile pavers for you to view. The finished memorial will be located adjacent to the SeaTac Community Center.
