The Monument Society submitted a new design for the George Wainbourn site to Vancouver Parks Board last week as it believes there were deficiencies in the design previously submitted.
The new design features a granite clad memorial centrally located at the George Wainbourn site with 16 names panels and 16 art panels for a total of 32 panels.
Four park benches would be located at each of the four quadrants at the site allowing visitors to sit and relax and observe any quadrant at their leisure.
The new design also allows for the site area to be called the “Garden of Ireland” as lawn areas will be added around the site with the Monument as the central feature.
The Society looks forward to hearing from Vancouver Parks Board regarding the proposal in the coming week and will proceed with computer model drawings for the public process given the new design is acceptable.
