Plans are in the works for a temporary memorial for the pulse shooting victims. Pulse nightclub owner Barbara Poma and the onePULSE Foundation have filed plans for the site of the mass shooting where a gunman killed 49 people and wounded dozens last year. Here are some of the plans for the interim memorial on orange avenue.
The memorial will include a more durable fence around the perimeter with artistic tribute murals; lighted benches and enhanced seating; landscape improvements; and an encasement that secures the Pulse sign, according to documents filed with the City of Orlando. The plans also include a steel wall with small holes where people can leave tributes.
According to Orlando Weekly, “City commissioners will be voting on issuing a temporary permit for the interim memorial at their regular meeting on Monday, Oct. 9 at 2 p.m. at Orlando City Hall, 400 S. Orange Ave. The onePULSE Foundation will be holding a town hall regarding the permanent memorial later that same day at 6 p.m. at the Orlando Repertory Theater on 1001 E. Princeton Street. ”
