Park To Mark Columbine Deaths

April 26, 2000

LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) _ Clement Park, where a makeshift memorial sprang up shortly after the Columbine High School shootings, will be the site of a permanent memorial to the dead and injured.

The park is adjacent to the school. Planners hope to dedicate the memorial on the second anniversary of the April 20, 1999, massacre.

Design and construction costs are expected to range from $500,000 to $1.5 million. So far, about $200,000 has been raised and more than 20 businesses have pledged materials and labor.

More than 250 artists have submitted design suggestions. A final decision will be made by a memorial committee with input from victims and families.
