The Honor Flight Legacy organization is requesting final design plans for the proposed Michigan World War II Legacy Memorial at Memorial Park be approved by the Royal Oak City Commission.
Approval of Michigan World War II Legacy Memorial
Approval of the design is an important part of their fund raising program, notes City Manager Don Johnson in a memo to commissioners.
The organization needs to raise $4 million to construct the year-round multi-purpose memorial. Sponsorship opportunities range from $100 for an engraved brick paver all the way up to $1.5 million for the presenting sponsor title.
Will Voters Get HRO Proposal Information in Mailbox?Commissioners will decide whether or not to send Royal Oak voters a letter drafted by the city attorney regarding ballot issues.
Commissioners voted 5-1 at the Sept. 16 city commission meeting to support directing staff to draft a letter to voters, provide costs for such a mailing and to offer alternatives that may be less costly.
Commissioner Jim Rasor told leaders he was concerned "there is a lot of misinformation out there" concerning Proposal A, the human rights ordinance.
