BACKGROUND
The Nueces County Fallen Heroes Memorial is a project dedicated to providing our communities’ first responders a place where their fallen can be appropriately honored and remembered. The project is to be located on the grounds on the North Side of the Nueces County Courthouse; with the improvements stretching from the County Courthouse entrance to the Leopard Street Corridor and bounded by the two parking lots to the East and West. The main Memorial honoring the Fallen Heroes is to be located in the (non-functioning) fountain space within the North grounds which will feature Memorial Plaques dedicated to individual Agencies that have individuals to be honored. These Memorial Plaques will be constructed of a combination of Cor-ten Steel sheets and aluminum name plates and will be back lit to provide visibility at night. The Memorial area will also include an eternal beam of light, ADA ramp access, informational kiosk, flag pole and donor recognition plaques. The North grounds will also include overall improvements to the landscaping, irrigation systems, security lighting & camera system, site furnishings and signage.  Turner, Ramirez & Associates, Inc., are  the Architects on this project.
