Lee Park sign covered up at Dallas' Oak Lawn Park

A crew started covering up one of the signs at Dallas' Oak Lawn Park, formerly known as Lee Park.

A team of workers on Tuesday began the process of filling in the recessed letters of one of the signs that reads Arlington Hall at Lee Park. Arlington Hall is a replica of Robert E. Lee's home in Virginia.

After much controversy and debate, the Lee statue was removed from the park in September after a nearly unanimous vote by the Dallas City Council.

The city was supposed to vote this week to determine the fate of other Confederate items throughout the city, as well as how to proceed with its base that remains at the park -- but the vote has been put on hold.
