The Town of Breckenridge held a meeting on Monday night during which they announced where the Breckenridge troll, formally known as Isak Heartstone, is set to be rebuilt.

Town officials have chosen a spot in Illinois Gulch near the ice rink. Those hoping the troll would find another environment with a natural feel can rejoice, as the troll is set to be rebuilt on a trail that will lead several hundred feet into the woods.

Here’s a tweet about the rebuild from James Dougherty, a Denver7 photojournalist, that also shows where the troll will find a new life:

Isak Heartstone, created by Thomas Dambo, caused a big controversy last October and November after the piece of art went viral online. Thousands of people traveled to visit the troll, which was placed near a neighborhood. Angry neighbors and problems posed by the icy trail to the troll resulted in the troll’s removal.

Previous announcements regarding the troll have mentioned that Thomas Dambo is on-contract to return in May for the rebuild.

Here’s a full timeline of what happened.
