CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The cost could be as much as $300,000. The Reverend Jimmy Gates says he expects about $135,000 from the city, and the group will raise the rest from donations.

Although the design is expected to selected on Thursday night, but actual groundbreaking may still be months away.
