(This amendment provides $50,000 the second year from the general fund to the Norfolk Botanical Garden to construct a memorial to commemorate the important role of the African American WPA workers who in the late 1930's created the original azalea garden. In 2005, Norfolk Botanical Garden was designated a Virginia Historical Landmark and was added to the National Register of Historic Places. This WPA memorial plaza will become a focal point at the Garden and source of pride for the African American community and for the region. The memorial will be dedicated during the Garden's 70th anniversary in 2008.)
