One resident isn't thrilled about the prospect of placing a memorial gazebo honoring military veterans near The Heights community center.
"I think it's a duplication of services," Harlie Frankel told City Council at its June 4 meeting. He said St. Louis already has a veterans memorial, a reference to Soldiers Memorial Military Museum in St. Louis city. That site honors World War I veterans and also hosts exhibits that pay tribute to veterans of other conflicts.
A group of volunteers that would honor veterans and host small-scale events. The facility would be completed next year in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of Richmond Heights.
Frankel said he's not trying to be un-American—he just thinks time and energy would be better spent on another project. He also questioned who would pay for lighting and other maintenance at the site.
