    The city has built a memorial

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    The city has built a memorial to honour the firefighters who lost their lives fighting the blaze the previous year.

    Re: The city has built a memorial

    With the present perfect at the beginning, I'd use 'last year' rather than 'the previous year'.
