This Board shall consist of one member of the governing body, two citizens of Duluth (at least one of whom is an active or retired veteran, Chairperson of the Planning Commission, and the Public Works Director.  Members will be appointed by the Mayor and Council to serve a four-year term.  Meetings will be held twice annually, as needed, to consider applications for exceptions and exemptions from the City’s Operating Procedure governing the Veteran’s Marker Program. 

About our markers

Each year the streets of the City of Duluth are lined with more than 800 markers and flags, representing those who served in the armed forces.  The flags and markers are on display the week before and after Memorial Day, and also the week before and after Veterans Day.

  All markers from Governors Landing east bound on SR120 have been moved to 3159 Buford Hwy.  All markers on Pleasant Hill westbound from WP Jones Park to McClure Bridge Road will be moved to George Rogers Avenue.  This change is due to safety issues for our crew.   

For additional information on this memorial, please contact the Department of Public Works at 770-476-2454.  You may also view the current listing of the veterans names, including the location of each marker and service.
