We are excited to announce: The Morton Downtown Memorial Plaza Committee has plans to host a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Wednesday, December 7th, 2016.
The initial plans for this memorial began with an idea from a local WWII veteran who approached the city's Park District and wanted Morton to have a veterans memorial. Now, after many months of planning and construction they will!
This new plaza has taken a vacant grassy area owned by the village on the east side of Main Street, south of Washington Street, and transformed it into a gathering place where people will be able to honor our veterans by providing a beautiful place to remember loved ones, as well as provide a venue for historical education for generations to come.
In addition it will have shaded seating, a water feature, play areas for younger and older children and public restrooms. Lighting, water, electricity and sound will also be available for community events.
Check out the YouTube video below which creates a Video fly-over of the Memorial Plaza. Note that this video shows the entryway sign as Morton Plaza, but the actual name will be Memorial Plaza.
MONDAY - FRIDAY 3:00 PM - 8:00 PM
