Requests for memorial plaques are guided by the Placement of Memorial on Public Open Space Policy (CP 2.3.13) and are reserved for residents of the City who are deemed to have made momentous contribution to the City of Gosnells community and have resided in the City for a significant period of time. The application needs to be supported by a reference letter from a member of the community or a representative of a community group.
If the application is approved, the applicant is responsible for supplying a plaque, measuring 150 to 200mm by 50 to 70mm and made in the City’s preferred material, to the City for installation. The City is not responsible for the replacement of lost, stolen or damaged plaques and any replacements will need to be supplied by the applicant.
Blue Tree Project
The City is a participant of the Blue Tree Project. In 2020, the Friends of Mary Carroll Wetland, students from Armadale Senior High School Support Unit and the City of Gosnells painted a tree blue in support of the project’s aims to spark difficult conversations, encourage people battling mental health issues to speak up, and break down stigma attached to mental health. The location at Mary Carroll Park offers beautiful views over the wetland and provides a place for quiet contemplation and reflection.
The City is not accepting any further requests to paint trees blue.
Please visit the Blue Tree Project for more information on alternative ways to participate in the project.
