After of Phase 1 of the Campbell Veterans Memorial, the tenacious group kicked off construction again and today, May 8 completed the final pour of concrete.
Phase 1 would consist of six major components:
- A single entry pathway that would be ADA compliant, starting from the 9/11 memorial and leading to the veterans memorial site.
- Relocation of the temporary sign announcing the location of the new memorial.
- The six flags of service representing the various arms of the military as well as a seventh to be located in the middle of the six, with the American flag and the Missing in Action/Prisoners of War flag.
- The Memorial Plaza is the major element of Phase 1.
- Tree removals
The project is costing the foundation about $650,000, which it has been and offering memorial bricks to be included in the project at $125 each. Phase 1 on its own will cost about $140,000, said Jim Free, Campbell Veterans Memorial Foundation president.
