Metro is working to design and build a cultural heritage and healing garden at Block 14 of Lone Fir Cemetery. The memorial will honor members of marginalized communities who were buried at Lone Fir, including thousands of Chinese and Chinese American people, as well as patients from the Oregon Hospital for the Insane.
Over the last several months, input has been gathered from a series of engagements, and this input has informed two design options for the future memorial garden. Metro would like your feedback on these designs.
This focus group is intended specifically for Chinese and Chinese American community members. The focus group will be hosted virtually on Zoom. Pre-registration is requested.
Register for the session
Note that Metro is also offering an opportunity to meet in person at the future site of the memorial garden (Block 14 in Lone Fir Cemetery) to review the designs on Saturday, October 21. That information session is open to all members of the public.
You do not need to have attended earlier engagements to participate in this event. The project team will provide a brief overview of the site history and work completed to date, to bring everyone up to speed.
