CLEVELAND COUNTY VETERANS MEMORIAL (CCVM)
According to Jude Foster,
Director of Parks and Recreation, “Our fundraising is almost
complete. When the City of Norman
budget is put into place on 1 July we should be able to begin
construction. Bids have been completed for the construction contractor,
granite has been ordered and the bronze sculpture is about to be cast.
We are anticipating having everything complete for a dedication on Veterans
Day 11 November.” Design aspects have been completed and the
pre-construction phase is in progress. To date, the project has raised just
under $200,000, most of which has been in private donations. The preliminary
construction cost for this project is estimated at $250,000.
