SARASOTA, Fla. — The city of Sarasota is asking for the public's input on where they should move the Unconditional Surrender statue.

The survey gives visuals of the nine possible sites for the city-owned statue. The current statue has to be moved to accommodate the new roundabout that's supposed to be built at U.S. 41 and Gulfstream Avenue in 2021.

The city has not yet released a date on when it will make the final decision.
