Whitemarsh Township has announced a plan for public meetings to allow the community to discuss the plans for the proposed “Heroes Ground” Veterans Monument in Miles Park. Heroes Ground is intended to be a place where residents can honor and pay tribute to those who have served our country. The development of Heroes Ground is being led by the Veterans’ Monument Foundation of Whitemarsh. The foundation started raising funds for the monument in 2011.
Heroes Ground has come before the Shade Tree Commission, the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors for discussion since being proposed nearly a decade ago. The Township and the Veterans Monument Foundation would like to provide additional opportunities for the community to review the project. The intent is to hold these meetings when we can gather safely outdoors rather than via Zoom. The time and location of the meetings will be announced shortly. No construction will begin until after the meetings.
