Work Starts at Binghamton ACA Memorial Site

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

Binghamton city public works employees Wednesday began site preparation at a small green space that will be transformed into the American Civic Association Memorial Park.

The park will be dedicated to the memory of the thirteen people who were shot to death at the American Civic Association building on Front Street on April 3, 2009.

The memorial site is on the southeast corner of Front and Clinton streets, near the Clinton Street Bridge. It’s a few blocks north of the ACA building.

Construction work on the project is expected to be completed in several weeks.

A committee formed to seek contributions for the project reported more than $200,000 had been raised.

Plans call for a monument to honor those who died, as well as those who survived and the community that responded to the tragedy.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, project coordinator David Marsland said he was pleased work on the site has started. He said he hopes the the memorial will be finished by sometime in December.
