The Paradise Town Council broke ground last Friday (Nov. 8) on Hope Plaza, a permanent Camp Fire memorial located on town-owned property at Skyway and Foster Road. Backers of the memorial—designs of which include an obelisk and water wall fountain—estimate the project will cost about $1.5 million. All the money, according to the Hope Plaza Memorial steering committee, will be raised privately.
