Veterans Memorial Plaza Renovation

Veterans Memorial Plaza Renovation RenderOver a century of history lies in the memorial area which speaks to the importance of preserving and maintaining the memorial plaza, while ensuring it is a safe, usable space for the entire Community for the next century.

The goals of this restoration project address several needs:

  • ADA accessibility by eliminating barriers
  • Installing new concrete seat wall benches to replace rotten wood benches
  • New stairs and add handrails to improve access
  • Moving bronze memorial plaques to a vertical surface for better visibility and preservation
  • Adding informational signage
  • Installation of podiums to recognize each of the armed forces

Funding support for this project:

  • Historic Cemeteries Grant - Oregon Heritage, Oregon State Parks
  • Design plans, site survey, construction documents and observation, bidding support
  • Metro Enhancement Grant - Metro Community Grant Program
  • Earthwork, concrete stairs, and footings
  • Veterans Memorial Grant - Oregon Heritage, Oregon State Parks
  • Concrete pathways, footings, and support walls around the perimeter of the memorial plaza
  • Armed Forces Podium Donation - Three Rivers VFW Post 1324
  • Podiums for Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Space Force to be placed on the pathway leading to the memorial area

We are seeking additional funding support for flagpole work and installation, concrete pavers, and the purchase and installation of concrete benches.
