Construction of the Southern California Veterans Memorial Park & Cemetery at the Great Park location was scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017 after the California Legislature approved the State budget.

However, since the three pro-developer Councilmembers rejected the $30 Million in state funds (during their June 6th emergency meeting), construction was cancelled.

The first phase of the Veterans Memorial Park and Cemetery at the Great Park was scheduled to be operational by Veterans Day 2019.
