Fort Collins 9/11 memorial to open in Spring Park next year

A memorial for 9/11 will open in Spring Park in Fort Collins next year. The more than 3,000 lb. steel I-beam pulled from World Trade Center wreckage currently sits on display in the lobby of the Poudre Fire Authority (PFA) training center in west Fort Collins. In 2024, it will move to its permanent home at Spring Park next to Poudre Fire Authority Station 3 in Midtown. A ceremonial groundbreaking was held at the park last week on 9/11, but construction won’t officially begin for a few weeks. The memorial will also include paving stones on the walkways honoring the 343 firefighters killed in the terrorist attack. The Coloradoan reports PFA Division Chief of Operations Rick Vander Velde escorted the beam on the last leg of its cross-country trip. He’s the last active firefighter at PFA, who responded to ground zero.
