Update on Veterans Memorial Park:

The South end of Veterans Memorial Park has always had araised berm which has protected the park from the river.  Since 1979, theSouth end of the park also had a structure and pump system to keep the parkfrom being flooded during high water tables.  During the construction overthe past couple of years, the water control Structure had been removed.  

The South end of the Veterans Memorial Park again has aStructure and pump in place to control the water levels.  The opening andclosing of the structure will be based on water levels.  For moreinformation on that, please contact Kathy Evans at West Michigan ShorelineRegional Development Commission (WMSRDC)@ 231-722-7878.

On September 9, 2019 the Veterans Advisory Committee requested that we ask the Parks Committee to explore what it would takephysically and financially to raise the berm, install a Structure to controlwater levels, and a pump system on the North end of the park.  

If and when the Parks Committee provides the physical andfinancial requirements to raise the berm, install a water level controlstructure, and install a pump system, the Veterans Advisory Committee will lookat ways to fund the project without using Muskegon County tax dollars.


VETERANS PARK FLAG UPDATE

The Flag is currently not flying at Veterans Memorial Park because the Cable inside the 70’ flagpole broke.  The City of Muskegon is working on getting this repaired.
