Neighbors, fans and supporters raised $61,000 to pay for a permanent monument to the Vaughan brothers, Stevie Ray and Jimmie, at Kiest Park.

Oak Cliff’s own blues brothers were raised near the park and attended L.V. Stockard Middle School and Kimball High School.

The city is calling a community meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13, at the Hampton-Illinois Library,  where neighbors can give their input for what they’d like a public monument to look like. After that, they will put out a call for proposals.
