Warner Robins City Council to build visitors center and Vietnam memorial
Mayor Randy Toms said the county has been saving up through its hotel-motel tax to fund the project. So far, they’ve saved about 1.3 million dollars.
Mayor Toms wants to build a parking lot, visitors center, and new Vietnam Veteran Memorial at the intersection of I-75 and Russell Parkway. He expects the city will need about three acres of land the create it.
Veterans in the area have a list of more than 1,500 people from Georgia who lost their lives in that war.
“They have them categorized in cities that they were from. I think it’s such an interesting concept to what can be a great memorial to draw people off the interstate,” explained Mayor Toms.
Mayor Toms is considering three different options for land in that area. He hopes to have the item on council’s agenda the first week of May.
