The Sandy Hook Permanent Memorial Commission is considering another parcel of land on the Fairfield Hills campus as a place to honor the 26 educators and children killed on 12-14.
After objections from open space advocates over the possibility of locating a memorial at the High Meadows, the Commission could be looking a little further down the road. The Newtown Bee reports that there is a site half a mile away near the intersection of Wasserman Way and Nunnawauk Road under consideration.
The parcel was set aside for future town use and already has a small parking lot for those who use the land for passive recreation. The state would have to sign off on that site though if it is to be used for anything other than agriculture or open space.
The Commission is still drafting design guidelines, but a consultant has suggested designs be no higher than 6-feet at its highest point.
