OVERLOOK PROJECT FUNDRAISER

The OVERLOOK PROJECT 

The Support Committee's Vision for the Overlook Project: "Shoal Creek is a place of natural beauty in the midst of the resting place of honored American military heroes. Here God’s creation will speak solace to the sorrowing, strengthen the weary, and renew an appreciation to all who come of the price of freedom through sacrifice."  

On March 13, 2013 the Support Committee selected Sherlock, Smith, and Adams Inc. Architects-Engineers (SS&A) to design the Scenic Overlook. The Concept Proposal was submitted for approval on April 29, 2013 to the Honorable Steve Muro, Under Secretary of Memorial Affairs at the National Cemetery Administration (NCA). Approval was granted on December 31, 2013. The architectural firm of Sherlock, Smith, and Adams has compiled the needed site survey data. The landscape architect and the engineer have determine the best path route considering slopes necessary for wheel chair access, minimizing land disturbance and the ability to save trees. The geotechnical surveying at areas of cut and the overlook structure has been completed and SS&A is working on the schematic design submission to NCA. They will also provide an updated estimated cost. The current estimated cost is $600,000. Concurrently, SCALNC received the DRAFT Offer to Donate (OTD) from NCA in November and responded with Questions/Suggestions/Corrections on December 2, 2014.

Two videos have been prepared, (watch on vimeo) one informational and the second to assist the fund raising efforts now underway.

The NCA Offer To Donate (OTD) response to SCALNC first set of Review comments (submitted in March, 2015) was received on May 12, 2016 (~14 months later). Based on the lengthy time to receive the NCA response and an updated estimate of the time to raise the $600K, a revised Schedule was prepared which now projects an Overlook Dedication at ALNC on Memorial Day, May 27, 2019. This will entail a tremendous fundraising effort and we need your help.
