City of New Bedford to hold meeting on monument honoring veterans of post 9/11 conflicts


“The City is hosting a public meeting to gather feedback on the proposed monument in the South End to honor veterans of the Global War on Terror.

The monument’s advisory committee and professionals from Martha Schwartz Partners, the internationally renowned design firm chosen to build the monument, will meet on Monday, Feb. 12 at the Fort Taber Community Room at 6 p.m. Preliminary design concepts for the monument will be available for review and discussion.

Mayor Jon Mitchell announced the formation of an advisory committee to oversee the monument project at a 9/11 memorial service in 2021. The advisory committee, made up of members from the Veterans Advisory Board, local artists, and members of various City departments, has recommended the West Beach jetty as the location for the monument.”-City of New Bedford.
