Proposed changes to First Responders Park in Westerville elicit emotional responses
For many Westerville residents, the question is less about whether the city should build a memorial to two slain police officers, but how and where it should be done. The city's current plan calls for a sweeping, $1 million redesign of First Responders Park at 374 W. Main St. As part of an overhaul that would more than double the 8-year-old park's size, a memorial waterfall would be built to honor Anthony Morelli and Eric Joering, the two officers who were shot to death while responding to a domestic violence call Feb. 10. Their names would be placed next to that of David Theisen, a Westerville firefighter who died in a 1998 fire in Crooksville in Perry County.
