FROM: Bill Gallardo

Subject:
Resolution in Support of a Veterans Cemetery in Anaheim
RECOMMENDATION
Adopt Resolution No. 2021-052 in support of the establishment of a veterans cemetery in the City of Anaheim
BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION
Orange County is home to over 130,000 veterans, many of which are Brea residents who deserve a final resting place here in Orange County. However, the closest veterans cemeteries are in Riverside, Los Angeles, and San Diego.

After more than a decade of debate over a location, there is now a large, bipartisan consensus building around the Anaheim location in Gypsum Canyon. Recently, the Anaheim City Council voted unanimously to support the Anaheim site, and the Orange County Board of Supervisors unanimously allocated $20 million to develop a veterans cemetery in Anaheim.

It is recommended that the Brea City Council adopt this resolution in support of a veterans cemetery at the Anaheim site. This action will support bringing to fruition a final resting place for the brave men and women who have served our country.
RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED:
William Gallardo, City Manager
Prepared by: Melissa Davis, Management Analyst
