War Monument to remain in same location


Decatur – Talks to move the Civil War Monument in Decatur Central Park have come to an end.


The City had originally received a proposal to move the monument to the south side of Central Park, for the Central Park Streetscape project. However, that plan exceeded the estimated cost of $50,000, now they plan to leave the monument and change the area around it.


These new changes will cost approximately $6,000, which is $44,000 less then the cost of moving the monument.
