The Alhambra 9/11 Memorial at the Alhambra Fire Department Headquarters (301 N. First St.) was dedicated on September 11, 2013 to honor not only the innocent victims who died that day through the actions of international terrorists, but also the lives of the brave firefighters who, with no thought of their own safety, rushed to aid victims, thus paying the ultimate sacrifice.
The centerpiece of the memorial is a 500+ lb steel artifact, one of approximately 2,000 steel pieces from the World Trade Center that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey have distributed to municipalities and non-profit organizations throughout the U.S. and in select foreign locales.
The Alhambra Fire Department, led by Chief Bill Walker, and the Alhambra Firefighters Association, under the presidency of Engineer Arnold Furr, worked for several years to establish the memorial, supported by a $50,000 grant from the City of Alhambra Arts and Cultural Events Committee, pro-bono engineering and design work from Lenkin Design, and a $25,000 grant from the San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District.
(Update as of March 19, 2018). You may have seen a notice in Around Alhambra indicating that the Draft General Plan Update and Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) would be available for public review beginning March 23, 2018. However, the City and its consultant continue to refine both documents, and they will not be completed by this date. A new notice indicating a revised date for public review will be issued once the documents are ready. We anticipate that this will occur in the next couple of months and apologize for any inconvenience that this delay has caused. If you have already signed up for email notifications, you will be emailed when the documents are available for review. If you have not signed up and wish to be notified please send an email to: email@example.com. Please type “Request for Notification” in the subject line.
