WEST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - West Haven officials have found a compromise to build a playground memorializing one of the children fatally shot at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The New Haven Register reports (https://bit.ly/Qn0vmT ) that town officials and members of the West Haven Land Trust agreed Monday night to a playground honoring the memory of 6-year-old Charlotte Bacon at another site rather than a location protected by a land restriction.

The “Where Angels Play” Sandy Ground Project was begun by Elizabeth, N.J., Fire Department Capt. Bill Lavin to honor the 20 children and six educators who were killed in the December 2012 massacre. Twenty-six playgrounds in Connecticut, New York and New Jersey are planned.

The West Haven site will be the 23rd.

Donations will finance the construction of the playgrounds.
