Council hears plans for Veteran Park

If things go according to plan, Cedar Springs could have its own Veteran Park by the Fourth of July.

Dan Brown was at the Cedar Springs City Council meeting last Thursday, March 11, to present his plans. It will now go to the Cedar Springs Planning Commission the first week in April for site plan approval. Permits must also be gotten from the DNRE and DEQ.

The park will be located on city property at the corner of N. Main and E. Oak Street, on the south side of the creek. The parcel was once home to a home improvement business that burned down several years ago.

Brown said the park would be in honor of all veterans. It will include a sidewalk, trees, benches and three spots for monuments representing different wars, including one for his nephew Tim Brown, who died in the war for Iraqi freedom. But the monument will come after the park is completed. “My main concern is to get the park going,” he said.

Much of the supplies and labor will donated by local businesses. They are still looking for $6,000 for light poles, and for volunteers to help.

Anyone wishing to donate can call Brown at (616) 292-8767.
