The Veteran’s Memorial Park Committee was at the City Council meeting in Summerville yesterday afternoon requesting more land for expansion of the Veteran’s Memorial Park at Dowdy Park in Summerville.
Sewell Cash, spokesman for the group addressed the city council presenting the request to the mayor and council. According to Cash, phase 1 of the Veteran’s Memorial Park has been completed and the committee would like to expand the Veteran’s Memorial all the way to the creek.
In order for the expansion to happen the way the Veteran’s Memorial Park Committee would like it, the Gazebo at Dowdy Park would have to be moved.
Mayor Norton said that he and the city council members would meet with members of the Veteran’s Memorial Park Committee at the park to look at the possible expansion.
