Franklin County Commissioners have cleared the way for demolition of Vet’s Memorial. It’s part of a project to spruce up the west side of the Scioto River. But some veterans are not happy, and at least one group may still try to stop it.
A group of veterans opposed to the demolition of Vets Memorial said it may try to stop the re-development plans by taking the issue to voters.
Franklin County Commissioners announced Tuesday they will support a contract that would lead to the demolition of Vets Memorial. The issue has been hotly contested by veterans.
Plans were unveiled Tuesday to develop the area around COSI. 56 acres surrounding the center would be highlighted by a new veterans’ memorial, a downtown Columbus zoo exhibit, the creation of a new neighborhood and a lot more green space.
