Murphy Veterans Tribute Selects Design Company
Good News, the committee for the Murphy Veterans Tribute (MVT) has selected a company to start the planning and design phase for our Central Park Site in Murphy. Halff Associates, a well-respected local company with David Buchanan, Landscape Architect, as the lead person, met with the committee to discuss their services and expertise and begin planning a design for our site. The site encompasses a 100' x 100' piece of land north of the Murphy amphitheater and near the PSA parking lot and food truck court.
At the Murphy Historical Society meeting January 23, our MVT Committee began developing our vision statement to guide Halff Associates with the design and 'feeling' that we all desire for this community project.
Financially, the Murphy Veterans Tribute project needs to raise $10,000 initially to get the designs and the engineering plans ready for construction. After the design is finalized, we will begin major fundraising efforts to raise the necessary dollars to prepare the property and construct the tribute. While there are some funds currently available from smaller fund-raising efforts, the tribute needs the community’s help to raise the initial $10,000.
If you are interested in helping to create a Veterans Tribute that honors our military veterans and helps enhance the property selected for the tribute, we are asking for your donations. Donations are tax deductible and every donation, no matter the size, will help us move forward. Please help us reach our initial goal to get this process started. You may send your tax deductible donation to: Murphy Historical Society (MVT) 120 E. FM 544, Suite 72 PMB 271 Murphy, TX 75094. Note on bottom of check: Murphy Veterans Tribute.
