WASHINGTON STATE VETERANS CEMETERY– MEDICAL LAKE, WA
JGM was the prime consultant to plan a new veteran’s cemetery to serve the veterans of Eastern Washington. JGM Worked closely with a consultant team of architects, engineers, geologists and wetland scientists; the State Department of Veterans Affairs; the new director for the cemetery; and a strong and active veterans group from Spokane, to prepare a site analysis and created four preliminary master plan alternatives. A preferred alternative was selected, refined and submitted to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for a State Cemetery Grant of $9.5 million.
Phase I of the project was completed in Summer 2010. David McNeal was the lead master planner and Principal-in-Charge. Ted Wall was the Project Manager. The cemetery was dedicated and opened on Memorial Day, 2010.
