CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Politicians on both sides agree, no one wants to see more violence like the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary. Losing 20 school children and 6 adults who worked with them, is still a shock to our sensibilities.
And even though it happened way up in Connecticut, there is a movement here in Charlotte to honor their memory.
The idea came just two days after the shootings. Mecklenburg County Park and Rec officials and community leaders met today to get the ball rolling on a playground to honor the victims.
Children will help design and name the new park which is still in the very early planning phases. The idea is to get the help of community volunteers to help build it and to raise much of the money to pay for it.
Park and Rec director Jim Garges says it should cost around 250 thousand dollars. 100 thousand of that will come from county funds.
"We're setting a vision we're setting a timeline but we're gonna need the community members to step up and help," said Garges
Garges says they hope to have the park finished before the school year is done.
