[HISTORY: Adopted by the City of Royal Oak 11-6-2007 by Ord. No. 2007-07.[1] Amendments noted where applicable.]
[1]
Editor's Note: This ordinance was adopted and approved at the General Election held on 11-6-2007. The ordinance was adopted by the electors pursuant to specific authority contained in Chapter Six, Section 6, of the Charter.
This chapter shall be known and may be cited as the "Veterans War Memorial Ordinance."
This is a chapter to designate a portion of the Barbara A. Hallman Memorial Plaza for continued use as a memorial honoring members of the American and Canadian armed forces who have lost their lives in service to their country.
The Royal Oak City Commission hereby makes the following findings:
A. 
In 1997, the City Commission adopted a resolution naming the area between City Hall, the Royal Oak Public Library, Troy Street and the Veterans' War Memorial as the Barbara A. Hallman Memorial Plaza.
B. 
In 2006, the Veterans' War Memorial was moved from the western end of the Hallman Plaza to its current location between City Hall and the Library, and was rededicated in memory of members of the American and Canadian armed forces who have lost their lives in service to their country.
C. 
The current site of the Veterans' War Memorial is an appropriate location for the Memorial, and the designation of that area for continued use as a memorial honoring members of the American and Canadian armed forces who have lost their lives in service to their country should be formalized by way of ordinance.
The following portion of the Barbara A. Hallman Memorial Plaza is designated for continued use as a memorial honoring members of the American and Canadian armed forces who have lost their lives in service to their country:
That portion of vacated Second Street (East of vacated Williams Street and West of Troy Street), extending from the East line of vacated Williams Street to the West line of Troy Street, adjacent to Lot 7, vacated public alley, and Lot 8 in Block 1 of Assessor's Plat No. 20, and also adjacent to Lot 1 in Block 12 of Assessor's Plat No. 20. Also including the northernmost 10.00 feet of the aforementioned Lot 1 in Block 12; all in Assessor's Plat No. 20, T. 1N., R. 11E., City of Royal Oak, Oakland County, Michigan, as recorded in Liber 53, Page 33 of Plats, Oakland County Records.
