SAFETY HARBOR – The city of Safety Harbor has been planning, designing and soliciting donations for a 9/11 memorial to incorporate a piece of steel acquired from the World Trade Center attack. The memorial will be located on Main Street between City Hall and the fire station. The city has nearly met its goal but still seeks private donations or in-kind services.
The city commission’s goal is to raise 100 percent of the funds from private donations and in-kind services and hopes to complete construction by Sept. 11 of this year, with a dedication ceremony on the same date. The total project cost is $55,000. The city is roughly $10,000 short of the goal.
If anyone wishes to donate, checks may be made out to the city of Safety Harbor with 9/11 Memorial noted on the memo line. Checks can be mailed to the city of Safety Harbor Attn: Fire Department, 750 Main Street, Safety Harbor, 34695.
