Local Residents Invited to Participate in Kirk Park Community Design Sessions
Two additional community design sessions to envision Kirk Park as a new Minority Veterans & Service Members Memorial. Syracuse residents are invited to participate in this effort by attending and sharing ideas with project designers in small group discussions.
Design consultant, Barton & Loguidice, together with the city of Syracuse Department of Parks and Recreation, will hold the design sessions on Tue., Sep. 12 from 12:00 p.m. to 3 p.m. and Thu., Sep. 14 from 4:00 p.m. to 7 p.m. Both sessions will take place in the Kirk Park Community Center, located at 300 West Borden Avenue, Syracuse, NY 13205.“
The Kirk Park Minority Veterans and Service Members Memorial will serve as an important tribute commemorating the contributions and sacrifices of our city’s minority Veterans and service members,” said Mayor Ben Walsh. “I am encouraging families to participate in the sessions and look forward to seeing how the community shapes this space to honor these men and women.”
This project is funded with $250,000 of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds allocated by the Syracuse Common Council.
During these sessions, attendees will learn about project goals, known constraints, and opportunities while giving input for the conceptual design of the new Minority Veterans and Service Members Memorial.
