COLUMBUS STATUE PLACED IN STORAGE
The City of Chula Vista has placed in storage the Christopher Columbus statue that has been located at Discovery Park since 1991. The statue was removed out of public safety concerns. The statue was removed and stored early this morning.
On February 27, 2020, the Chula Vista Human Relations Commission approved a resolution to request the City Council consider the removal of the statue of Christopher Columbus (located at Discovery Park). Due to restrictions related to coronavirus, there has not been an opportunity to hold a public forum for community dialogue. It is expected that the item will be brought forward for further public input and consideration.
