RALEIGH, N.C. — Many people may want to get their hands on them, but the bricks from Fayetteville Street Mall will go to the dump.
Dozens have called Raleigh City Hall, asking if they can have the bricks for home projects, but city leaders said it would cost thousands of dollars to salvage the bricks for the general public.
"I just feel like the city should step up and give citizens of Raleigh a chance to use the bricks in their backyards or in their homes and also make a commitment not only to the citizens, but the environment and not have the bricks landfilled," said landscape architect intern Kimberly Siran said.
The city put about 3,000 bricks aside for future community projects.
