The Sandy Hook Permanent Memorial Commission has voted unanimously on a property to recommend to town officials. The group is proposing that Newtown discuss placing a memorial at the SAC Field. Discussions will be transferred from the Permanent Memorial Commission to the Town.
If the trustees and the town agree on the location, the Commission will move into the design stage of the project. If the site is not feasible, a new location will need to be identified.
Riverside Road residents near SAC Field were contacted to get insight and recommendations, and to address any concern with the proposed site. The Commission is looking for a design that will have a minimal impact on the neighborhood while ensuring that the location is secure and safe for everyone.

Families directly impacted on 12-14 continue to be updated by the Commission to ensure the design guidelines are accurately constructed. Once the town's Land Use Office and legal team update the Commission on the standing of using their recommended location, the group will give an update to the community.
