At tonight’s meeting, the Council will consider approving the installation of two commemorative benches recognizing two distinguished community leaders.

One bench is being considered to be installed on the Trolley Trail near the corner of Amherst Avenue in honor and recognition of Dr. Richard Wagner. Dr. Wagner was the founder and former Chair of the College Park City University Partnership. He passed away in May.

The Lakeland Community Heritage Project is requesting a commemorative bench to be placed in the Lakeland community to honor Mr. J. M. Chesley Mack, who was a civic leader, entrepreneur, and business owner and served on the City Council from 1945 (when College Park was incorporated) until 1957. The Council will consider approving the request.
