A rendering of what the Lawrenceburg Parks memorial could look like.
City of Lawrenceburg
(Lawrenceburg, Ind.) – Five men who worked to establish the City of Lawrenceburg’s park system will have their legacies preserved in a proposed new memorial.
The city is planning a memorial at Todd-Creech Park dedicated to namesakes Luther Todd and Jim Creech, as well as other city park promoters Denny Lewis, Pat O’Neill, and Jerry Hawkins. Each of the former city employees or elected officials has passed away.
At Monday’s meeting of the Lawrenceburg Parks Board, city construction manager Mario Todd, the son of Luther Todd, presented a computer-generated animation of what the park will look like. It will include a pillar for each individual decorated with a plaque and a smaller stone with another plaque all looking a pre-existing circular stamped concrete area. Landscaping with flowers and trees will adorn the memorial.
Todd said the memorial project has just an outsource budget of under $12,000. Much of the work and labor will be performed in-house by city employees. The parks board unanimously voted to approve the funding.
The project is going out for quotes by next week, Todd said.
