WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — Warner Robins officials have approved funding for a long-sought Vietnam veterans park in addition to two visitor centers.
The Telegraph (http://bit.ly/2do29jL) reports there were about two dozen Vietnam veterans in attendance during the City Council meeting Monday.
The park is expected to cost $450,000 and be located next to a new visitors center to be constructed somewhere along Interstate 75. The city has not yet purchased a tract of land for it, but Councilman Tim Thomas said he expects that to happen soon.
Thomas says construction on the park could start within a couple of months. The park’s cost will be paid with special purpose local option sales tax dollars.
City officials also agreed to spend $620,000 on the I-75 visitors center and $700,000 on a downtown visitors center.
