Yarraman residents are being asked to consider a new future for the town’s War Memorial Cenotaph with a community survey progressing to garner feedback for the possible relocation of the site.
Constructed in the current location in 1995, the Yarraman Returned Services League Sub-Branch has proposed to Toowoomba Regional Council to consider the relocation of the cenotaph from the current location at Memorial Park on Toomey Street (D’Aguilar Highway).
TRC Parks and Recreation Services Portfolio Leader Cr Tim McMahon said the Yarraman RSL had identified that there are growing numbers of people consistently attending the ANZAC Day services.
“The RSL approached Council to consider the use of a dedicated space within the Yarraman Recreation Ground and Memorial Park, off Emmert Street, to be a new home for the timber cenotaph and the other memorial items.
“This would potentially create a quieter and safer environment for patrons during commemorative services.
