Public Invited to Forum on JFK Memorial

KA_Hyannis_JFK kennedy memorial_11315HYANNIS – As the project to restore the 50 year old JFK Memorial in Hyannis gets underway, the public is invited to a meeting next week to participate in the process.

Officials with the town are seeking the public’s input as to what upgrades should be made to the Monument.

Barnstable County Services Director Lynn Poyant said when considering a tribute to the president, the town wanted to remember a neighbor.

“When JFK died, the town immediately felt the loss and felt they needed to remember this neighbor who served as president.”

Poyant also discussed the monument’s history, saying the 50th anniversary of its construction was on July 8th.  She said the town architect was able  to consult with the monument’s original builder as they consider repairs and upgrades.

The public discussion will be held at Barnstable Town Hall Monday, August 15th at 7pm.
