BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A private group has proposed funding a $400,000 project to install lighting at the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery south of Mandan.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1NxRDFC ) that a meeting on the project will be held at 7 p.m. Monday at the Raymond J. Bohn Armory Theater. Members of the private group and personnel from the National Guard will attend to answer questions.

Organizers say they want to install lighting along the roadways and walking paths spanning across the cemetery. A draft proposal includes 48 light poles with 90 lights to circle 1 mile around the grounds of the cemetery.

Backers of the project say nearly half of the project’s cost has already been raised from businesses and private donations.
