PROPOSED WAR MEMORIAL MONUMENTS
DISPLAY IN CITY HALL ROTUNDA

 

Daly City - The City Council of Daly City invites the public to provide comments on the proposed design of a monument, which will honor Daly City residents who have served the United States in a branch of military service, and recognizes the ultimate sacrifice made in time of war. The monument will be placed at the entrance of the new War Memorial Community Center & Library building currently under construction on Mission Street near the Top of the Hill. The proposed new monument will expand upon the tributes previously displayed at the original War Memorial Building and provides an appropriate memorial for citizens who have served their country for the cause of freedom.

A model of the proposed design of the monument is currently on display in the Daly City Civic Center Rotunda (next to the Police Department), located at 333- 90th Street in Daly City. The display will be available for review until December 15, 2005. The City Council welcomes comments from citizens on the proposed design, which may be submitted by completing the comment cards available at the display location.

The new War Memorial Community Center & Library is a $10.5 million facility to serve the community, and will consist of two gymnasiums, multi-purpose rooms, and a library to replace the existing John Daly Library. The building is expected to be open to the public in Summer 2006.
