This measure would request the Department of Transportation to determine the cost of appropriate directional signs, consistent with the signing requirements for the state highway system, on State Highway Route 101 at its intersection with westbound State Highway Route 41 in the City of Atascadero, to the Faces of Freedom Veterans Memorial and, upon receiving donations from nonstate sources covering the cost, to erect those signs.

WHEREAS, The Faces of Freedom Veterans Memorial, located at 8038 Portola Road in the City of Atascadero, was dedicated on November 8, 2008; and
WHEREAS, The memorial consists of three elements, which are the Pathway to Freedom, the Faces of Freedom sculpture, and the Heroes Wall; and
WHEREAS, The memorial is the result of the efforts of the Atascadero Veterans Memorial Foundation, created in April 2006, with a goal of building a world class veterans memorial on the California central coast; and
WHEREAS, The foundation is comprised of two groups of veterans and community members, including retired, active duty, and reserve servicemembers, military family members, local and national corporate sponsors, other members of the community, and sculptor Mark Greenway; and
WHEREAS, The memorial is intended to honor the nation’s servicemembers by serving as a symbol of the public’s gratitude to those who, through their service and sacrifice, put their country first, and to teach youth about the nation’s core values; and
