Plans and Construction
Once the site was selected the Port Commission contracted with Corvus Design to design a memorial. Chris Mertl made numerous trips to Wrangell meet with the Commission and the public in workshops and to visit the site. Many ideas were brought forth for concepts, features and general feel that the town wanted in the memorial. Chris developed a preliminary plan and then met again with people to further refine the plan. From the public input and on site visits a final plan was chosen and construction documents drawn up. These are the plans that WMM is using as we move forward with construction. These plans were paid for by the City and along with the long term lease should be viewed as an in-kind contribution.
