Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument Update
Dear Peachtree Corners Neighbor,
As a member of the Peachtree Corners community and a veteran, I am honored to be part of the effort to make the Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument a reality. Through generous donations from community residents such as yourselves and local businesses, we are more than half way to our fundraising goal. The monument, which will be in the new Town Center, will serve not only as a special place to honor the sacrifices of all veterans, but also will provide several educational opportunities to learn more about local heroes, each of the U.S. Armed Forces, and America’s significant military operations. It is our intent to fund the monument completely through private donations.
You may have previously heard of the Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument, as this has been a multi-year fundraising and planning process. Here is a brief update on our progress:
Construction plans are in place, a contractor has been selected and seven beautiful bronze sculptures will be ready to be poured this fall
Over 300 Peachtree Corners businesses and community supporters have made generous donations
284 personalized engraved pavers have been purchased as a special way to honor a loved one and/or veterans in general
The generosity to-date has been remarkable! With the planned start of construction on the horizon, we are looking to this amazing community to help get us over the goal line!
Please consider supporting the Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument either through a flat donation or by purchasing a customized paver. If you have already donated, we encourage you to help us spread the word by inviting at least 5 of your friends, neighbors, and coworkers to show their support.
We are deeply humbled and privileged to be able to bring this monument to the residents of Peachtree Corners and look forward to continued support from our community.
Thank you in advance for your contribution,
Executive Director, Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument Association
UPCCA hosted a Land Use Meeting for the Fiserv Property, located at 4411 East Jones Bridge Road, on January 29, 2018 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Peachtree Corners City Hall.
Ty White and Robert Miller outlined the following plan for the property:
4411 East Jones Bridge Road will soon be home to Georgia's preeminent retirement community focused on active adults who are 55+. The new neighborhood will emphasize wellness, sustainability, connectivity, technology, and innovation throughout. Approximately two-thirds of the 115-acre community will be preserved as green spaces and rolling woodlands to create a retreat-like setting. Residents will want for nothing. There will be an unparalleled array of amenities, services, and features created for a new generation of empty-nesters wanting a community and lifestyle has dynamic as them in a unique location that offers a true live, walk, play lifestyle.
Honor a Veteran by Purchasing
a Paver in Their Name
You may have heard that The City of Peachtree Corners is planning a Town Center project that will feature restaurants, shops and townhouses. The project will also include a Town Green for events - and something more...
Just off the Town Green, a special project is taking shape that will help make our community even more unique. The Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument Association is a group of volunteers who have come together to envision, plan and build a monument honoring United States veterans from all services and especially veterans who live in Peachtree Corners. You can view plans and drawings for the monument on their website and even see photos of the statues planned to honor each branch of the service.
The association has begun actively raising funds to support the proposed monument, and already has raised almost 20% of the $500,000 goal. One way you can participate is to buy one or more pavers to honor the Veterans in your family or among your friends, that will make up the floor of the monument. Each paver can be engraved with the name of a Veteran (living or deceased, resident of Peachtree Corners or not).
Please consider supporting this worthwhile project to honor your loved ones who have served!
You can make your purchase online here or download the attached PDF of the Paver Order Form below. We have even provided room for additional information about the veterans honored that will be incorporated into the Monument's app.
The Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument Association will provide you with a printable certificate that you can customize to give to the Veterans that you have chosen to honor.
