Members of the Los Gatos Veterans Memorial & Sup-
port Foundation will decide soon if they want to develop
new plans for a memorial at the civic center or if they will
abandon Los Gatos altogether. Foundation members met
on Jan. 26 to weigh their options, which were outlined by
the town council on Jan. 20.
At that time the council said a memorial could be built in
the fountain area of the civic center's upper deck or in the
redwood grove on the civic center's front lawn.
"We can't build in the redwood grove because sinking
a foundation will damage the trees," foundation member
Duino Giordano said.
Member John Lochner added, "The town arborist indi-
cated we'd have to be away from the tree roots, which puts
it in the middle of the grassy area."
However, the Arts and Culture Commission, which
studied the memorial proposal, said it did not want more
"hardscape" on the front lawn.
"We feel the plaza is where the memorial should be," foun-
dation president Mike Frangadakis said.
