The City of Orlando has begun taking steps to move the Confederate statue out of Lake Eola.

Friday afternoon, crews had sectioned off the plaza surrounding the statue in order to set up 3-D image capturing cameras. The white balls in the above photo give the programmers a depth of field when editing the images on a computer. According to the workers, the City requested they document the space prior to the historic statue being relocated to the Confederate memorial corner of Greenwood Cemetery.

Mayor Buddy Dyer has stated that initial estimates suggest that it will cost roughly $120,000 to move the statue, short of any additional repairs being needed.

There is no public timetable for the move at this time.
