The resolution keeps the current Confederate monument in place but asks city staff to draft a plan to allow other monuments celebrating ethnic groups that settled here.

Commissioners are expecting a large turnout Dec. 4 from citizens who want to comment about the future of the Confederate monument in the center of the park.

As a result of today’s discussion, the city attorney will revise the proposed resolution above to say that a master plan could include additional monuments in parts of downtown outside of Munn Park.
