Once again the proposed Quang Tri Memorial is back on Westminster’s city council agenda. This time, it returns with an amended proposal that includes reduced dimensions and new potential locations.
This Wednesday at 7 p.m. at 8200 Westminster Blvd., residents will have their chance to speak up about the memorial in a public hearing. Either in person or via Zoom, people can voice their thoughts, arguments, and agreements regarding the Quang Tri Memorial.
The decision to discuss this now comes after a previous September city council meeting in which council members delayed this conversation until after the general election.
The locations being considered are the Miriam Warne Community Building, located at 14491 Beach Blvd. (at Hazard Avenue) and the Sid Goldstein Freedom Park in the Westminster Civic Center.
The second Battle of Quang Tri in 1972 involved the success of South Vietnamese forces, along with American troops, in defeating North Vietnamese forces during the Vietnam War.
