BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The concept for a new Veterans Memorial was approved by Council in 2015. Luck Design provided conceptual renderings and design work for free to keep original costs down. These designs were vetted through various groups in the following years. 

 

In 2018, Luck Design was hired to provide preliminary design and cost estimating for this project for potential inclusion in the 2019 Bond Program. In May 2019, voters approved the Veterans Memorial as part of the new Police Department Facility Project. Luck Design was hired by the Police Department architect, PGAL, to provide Landscape Architecture and Veterans Memorial design. Joeris General Contactors was hired to construct the new facility and memorial.

 

Construction began on the new Police Department and Veterans Memorial in January 2021. Although the layout of the memorial has been finalized, the content (words/images) of the memorial is still under review. A committee was formed consisting of City of New Braunfels veteran staff, Gold Star family members, and members from the local VFW and American Legion posts to finalize the images and content of the memorial.

 

The presentation will provide renderings of the proposed layout, wording, and images for the Council to review and discuss.
