ROSWELL, Ga. (AP) - A plan to develop the area around Roswell City Hall will require cutting down and planting trees as well as moving two veterans’ memorials.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (https://on-ajc.com/2fNT1uS) some Roswell residents are planning a protest against a proposed development that would cut down - and replant - dozens of trees near two war memorials.

On Dec. 17, a group of local conservationists plan to protest the city’s “City Green Master Plan & Design Project,” which is a plan to develop the lawn around city hall.

Two veterans’ memorials - the Faces of War Memorial, a monument that honors Vietnam War veterans, and a World War II memorial - will be relocated as well.

Roswell Mayor Jere Wood said one of the main purposes of the development will be to connect city hall to downtown.
