My name is Colby Pursell and I am a student at College of the Canyons. I am aware of the current project to create a granite Fallen Warriors Monument at the Veterans Historical Plaza in Newhall, and I fully support its creation.
The 50 fallen soldiers of Santa Clarita deserve to be honored the way that they should be after sacrificing their lives fighting for freedom for our country. The changes that need to be made to the current plaza are minor after considering the cause that this new monument is being constructed for.
The new additions that are being planned for the new monument, such as overhead lighting with the extended vine arbor, would enhance the appearance of the entire plaza, in my opinion.
City Hall should move forward with this project and take a leadership role because there is simply no good reason not to.
