Traverse City officials are teaming up with an LGBT organization to build a piece of public art downtown.
The city Arts Commission plans to erect a “wishing tree” in the Warehouse District during the annual Up North Pride week in June. The tree is meant to hold handwritten wishes tied to its branches.
The City Commission approved the project Monday night and approved spending up to $2,000 on the tree.
Traverse City resident Rick Buckhalter opposed the project. He said the Arts Commission is overstepping its bounds.
