The Commission unanimously selected the design “Eternal Legacy” by Gerard Stripling and Michele Taylor. Created of bronze, cast glass and resin the memorial sculpture represents an eternal flame within an unfurling flag. At the center of the installation will be an illuminated resin flame. Embedded within the bonze will be illuminated cast glass words: honor, courage, duty and remember. The design includes three inspirational quotations including “It is easy to be brave from a distance.” Surrounding the sculpture will be three internally illuminated benches which will each include a cast glass inserts with the Officers badge numbers and call sign. Since selection the artists have requested the inclusion of a flag and pole as part of their installation. The recommended design will be presented to the City Council for final approval on May 6, 2014.
