Public Memorials and Monuments

Cities play an important role in commemorating people, history and ideas central to a society’s sense of identity and value.   Memorials and monuments are tangible and easily recognizable forms of commemoration that enrich the city’s physical and social environment. 

The purpose of the Public Memorials and Monuments Policy is to establish a clear, objective, fair, and robust process for responding to requests to install memorials and monuments on city-owned property (e.g., public parks, right of ways). This policy encourages commemoration while ensuring that fair and balanced decisions are made.
