A commission studying what to do with Richmond's Confederate monuments has scheduled two public meetings to get additional community input.

The meetings will be held Thursday and Saturday, May 19.

from Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney's office says the meetings will provide a chance to review input solicited so far and take additional comments.

The commission is concluding its public engagement phase and preparing to compile a report for the mayor. It has been considering a range of options, from adding context to the monuments to removing or relocating them.

Dealing with the monuments will likely to be a long process. A state law at the center of a lawsuit in Charlottesville prohibits the removal of monuments to war veterans, and the General Assembly has shown little interest in changing it.
