January 8th Memorial at El Presidio Park
April 3, 2017
Chee Salette Architecture Office (CSAO) has revealed the final design for Tucson’s January 8th Memorial + Presidio Park master plan. The Arizona House of Representatives approved HB 2436 which would appropriate a matching $2.5 million in state funds to the project which has already raised $2.5 million, but still has not moved along in the State Senate and not expected to do so. Read the latest news on the memorial below.
The permanent memorial will tell the story of what happened on January 8, 2011 and will educate and remind people of their critical role in self-governance. Most of all, it will remind future generations how our community came together at an important moment in history and how we can all continue to build a better democracy through active participation and civic discourse.
