The plaque, through text and photos, honoring Camp Bushnell has been reviewed by Mayor Ben Kessler, City Council and the Tree Commission. The latter group gave approval to place the marker on the northwest quadrant of Drexel Circle. A formal dedication date has not been determined but is tentatively scheduled to be held in the Spring of 2020.
