PRESCOTT VALLEY, AZ (AP) -
Artists from around the country are being asked to submit proposals for a memorial to honor the 19 Arizona men who died fighting a fire nearly four years ago.
The Daily Courier reports that a spot near a historic courthouse in Prescott has been set aside for a memorial to the Granite Mountain Hotshots who were killed in the June 2013 wildfire.
Bruce Martinez, chairman of the Granite Mountain Hotshots Memorial Partnership, says a request for proposal was sent to dozens of artists several weeks ago asking for submissions by June 15.
The RFP includes several suggestions and guidelines, including a community wish-list compiled during the memorial's public comment period. It also requires the memorial design to be aesthetically and architecturally compatible with the Yavapai County Courthouse.
