SAN ANSELMO, Calif. (AP) - San Anselmo has approved a new downtown park to be built on land donated by filmmaker George Lucas that will feature statues of Indiana Jones and Yoda, two of his most popular characters.
The Marin Independent Journal reports that the San Anselmo Planning Commission voted unanimously Monday to approve the park, which could be completed as soon as June 1.
Lucas donated land for the 8,700-square-foot park. A commercial building on the site will be demolished at Lucas' expense, and an historic fresco relocated.
A fund is being established by a community foundation to pay for ongoing maintenance and care of the park, officials said.
The park's Yoda fountain will be similar to the one located at the Letterman Digital Arts Center in San Francisco.
