Title of the Wayspot: August Koskisen muistolaatta

Location: 62.566162, 25.839136

City: Suolahti (Äänekoski)

Country: Finland

Portal GUID: 0160a942e56b37099fb9d07d0ca30a7b.16

Ingress Intel link: https://intel.ingress.com/?ll=62.566162,25.839136&z=15&pll=62.566162,25.839136

A bronze memorial plate for August Koskinen, one of the founders of the town of Suolahti. It was installed on this historic building by the city of Suolahti on 10th of August 1982. The building is currently abandoned of all uses but it’s owned and maintained by the town of Suolahti.

This memorial plate can be verified from the list of public works of art and memorials in the city of Äänekoski (to which Suolahti is a part of nowadays) at https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luettelo_Äänekosken_julkisista_taideteoksista_ja_muistomerkeistä (Finnish).

I don't know why or how this Wayspot was removed, but there are no reasons to do so. It is not on private residential property.

    Appeal Accepted - Thanks for the appeal, Agent. After reviewing the additional evidence provided, we’ve decided to restore the Portal in question.

    @NianticSC I have just found out that even though this plaque is in the list of public memorials of Äänekoski, the building which it is attached to has recently turned into a residential building, a summer home of some kind, and a person is actually living there. This makes the portal invalid, and since I am the person who submitted it, I feel it should indeed be removed. Please tell me how to proceed if I need to take any further action besides this.
