Information
SUBJECT:
DISCUSSION AND POSSIBLE DIRECTION TO STAFF REGARDING A VETERANS AND FIRST RESPONDERS MEMORIAL PARK
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends approval.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
On November 25, 2015, Town Council received a memo from resident Dick Eggerding requesting the consideration of a "Memorial Public Art Project." After receiving Mr. Eggerding's request, the Agenda Committee placed the item on tonight's agenda for discussion and possible direction to staff. 
BACKGROUND OR DETAILED INFORMATION:
The purpose of the Veterans and First Responders Memorial Park is to honor the men and women who have served our community and country in times of need. Currently, there are no Veterans and First Responders Memorial Parks in the state of Arizona, making this a unique opportunity for Oro Valley. If Council moves forward with this proposal, staff would recommend creating a task force to determine the feasibility of building a Veterans and First Responders Memorial Park in Oro Valley. The task force will be responsible for the following:
  • Determining the project scope. For example, will the project include artwork and memorial plaques for Oro Valley residents only?
  • Determining the estimated cost of the project
  • Determining ongoing maintenance (if applicable)
FISCAL IMPACT:
N/A
SUGGESTED MOTION:
I MOVE (approval to / to not) direct staff to determine the feasibility of building a Veterans and First Responders Memorial Park and return to Town Council in spring of 2016.
