The Westminster City Council this week voted to rename Chelsea Park, to Jessica Ridgeway memorial park.

Balloons, stuffed animals and other items left in the 10-year old's memory were removed from the park in mid-October at the family's request, because of the changing weather conditions.

City officials say the old park sign has been removed and will be replaced in about two weeks.

A plan to redevelop the park has been moved up from 2014 to start next year.

Officials say planners are working with Jessica's family to develop a theme that will be a happy celebration of her life with some of her favorite things, such as a zip line and the color purple.

Officials say city funds are being used and donations will also be accepted.
