KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The Eric Zapata Memorial Garden on the downtown Kalamazoo Mall will be officially dedicated this coming Wednesday afternoon.

Planning for a memorial of some kind began soon after Eric Zapata became the first and only Public Safety officer in city history to die in the line of duty in April of 2011. It will include a bronze bust of Zapata on a pedestal that will stand about 7-feet tall and be positioned in a way that he will be “keeping watch” on the city.

The memorial garden will be located on the north mall next to the Radisson Plaza near Water Street. The dedication ceremony will be held on July 5th at 3 p.m.
