WARNER ROBINS -- Council members plan to visit Atlanta and at least two other Georgia cities Thursday morning to get inspiration for the Warner Robins veterans park, according to city officials.
Plans have not been finalized, but City Attorney Jim Elliott said council members may visit the Atlanta History Center and parks in Alpharetta, Athens or Jackson. Its not clear how many council members will attend, but according to a news release from the city there could be a quorum.
The veterans park has been talked about for years, but it seems to have crawled up the priority list in the past year or so. Several locations have been proposed, the latest being Walkers Pond.
The city closed on the $75,000 land purchase last week. Councilman Mike Daley said councils first priority for the land is to clean it up. Its not definitive that the veterans park will be at Walkers Pond, Daley said.
