Two parks on Marco Island bear similar names they are: Veterans’ Community Park and Veterans’ Memorial Park. The City wants citizens to help rename the Veterans’ Memorial Park, located at the intersection of Collier Boulevard and North Barfield Drive.
On February 16, 2010, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee (PRAC) selected the following names as finalists from various submissions from local residents: CELEBRATION PARK, PARADISE PARK, VISIONARY PARK, FOUNDERS PARK.
The residents of Marco Island are now invited to log on to the City’s website www.cityofmarcoisland.com?(middle of the front page) and vote. They can also email Bmilk@cityofmarcoisland.com?to vote for their desired name through March 15, 2010.
The PRAC will record the votes on March 16, 2010 and submit to the City Council for final action on April 5, 2010.
