The Benchmark Program was revised to include a 10-year contract for all Benchmark requests. If you are a previous donor through the Benchmark program, please read our FAQ.


Benchmark requests received between January 1- June 30 will be installed between May and October of the same year.

Individuals and/or groups who wish to participate in the Benchmark Program are required to complete the Benchmark donation form. Payment will not be required until the contract is signed and location finalized. Tax deductible receipts will be issued.

All benches and plaques will be maintained in their original location or in an area nearby, if possible, for the 10-year contract term. The disposition or relocation of the bench/plaque is at the sole discretion of the City.

The landscape will remain in its natural state. Maintaining a viewpoint or vista is not part of the program. Benches placed along ravines with a dropoff may require a wrought iron railing. This will be installed at the donor's cost. All donors will be required to sign a Commemorative Item Display Contract before installation.
