MLK memorial denied in Waterloo

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A setback for supporters of a Martin Luther King, Jr. memorial in a Waterloo park.  The Waterloo City Council denied a request from a group wanting to put the memorial in Washington Park.  The Cedar Valley Civil Rights Peace Walk wanted to put a multi-million dollar walkway and memorial in the park which sits next to the Grout Museum near downtown.  The project faced opposition from a nearby neighborhood association and the Waterloo Historic Preservation Commission.   The peace walk organization says it will meet later this week to figure out its next move.
