ORLANDO | Orlando City Council approved a temporary memorial outside of and around the Pulse nightclub Oct. 9.
The onePULSE Foundation submitted the plans to the city which includes removing the existing fence put around Pulse by the FBI and replacing it with a “more durable and artistic” fence that will incorporate murals as a tribute to the victims and survivors of the tragedy.
Other changes include new landscaping, park benches, an improved parking area and a perforated wall structure that would allow small offerings to be left. The plans also indicate that the now iconic Pulse sign will be secured and featured into the redesign.
The temporary memorial is expected to remain for two years, with a possible extension to three years, while a permanent memorial is completed.
