Mayor Keith A. James will be joined by City officials and local dignitaries to unveil a 4ft. x 4ft. rendering of planned improvements to the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Landmark Memorial.
The improvements will include: a working water feature, commemorative plaques, repaired observation deck, decorative lighting, damage-proof inground lighting, and focal points featuring the late civil right leader’s quotes.
Construction is scheduled to commence in Spring 2020 and last for approximately 90 days.
The planned improvements reflect the input of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Coordinating Committee, Inc., which is comprised of West Palm Beach residents who played a role in the memorial’s initial design in 1998. Once complete, the improvements will be the first upgrades since the project was completed in 2004.
