The gazebo outside Cudell Recreation Center, where Tamir Rice was shot and killed, is expected to be dismantled soon, according to Cleveland City Council.
At Wednesday night’s council meeting, it was noted that the gazebo will be deconstructed and taken to a storage site under ownership of the Tamir Rice Foundation.
The city also agreed to a memorial to be put in the gazebo’s place.
Councilman Matt Zone previously wanted the gazebo removed by the end of July. Now, council hopes the removal can be completed by the beginning of the school year.
In May, the Smithsonian Institute had indicated interest in preserving the gazebo.
