Welcome to the Sandy Hook Permanent Memorial Commission's Official webpage.
Our Commission was appointed and assembled in September of 2013 by the Newtown Board of Selectmen, in an effort to gather information and make a recommendation for a permanent memorial in our community. Our mission is to assure that this memorial honors the 26 lives lost at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14th, 2012.
With full transparency to the public and participation of those who want to be involved, our Commission will assist the Newtown Community throughout the process. Benchmarking similar previous events and understanding what has been done has helped us form a process - one which is still evolving.
Through our process, it is our goal to recommend the nature, location and funding of a permanent memorial. We will make this recommendation by working closely with the 26 families who lost a loved one and with the Newtown Community. We ask that you please be patient as our Commission continues this very sensitive and difficult work.
