City Approves Demolition of Two Columbus Ships:

The City Council agreed unanimously Tuesday to begin demolition of two Columbus ships.

The Pinta and the Santa Maria's condition has simply outrun the ability to fix them, according to staff and volunteers associated with restoring the three ships.

The City Manager will oversee the demolition project.

But first, parts of those ships will go to whatever is needed on the Nina, which will greatly help restoration efforts on that ship.

After that, the public will get a chance to buy parts of the two ships before the final demolition process.

The plaza surrounding the Nina will be rebuilt, to include a playground.
