The process to create a permanent 1 October memorial is continuing, with five design teams selected by the 1 October Memorial Committee close to completing their proposals. Clark County officials have announced that the proposed concepts will be unveiled to the public as part of an exhibit that opens June 5, in the Rotunda Gallery at the Clark County Government Center. The exhibit will be up through September 7 and is open Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The county has also announced additional events in the coming months to inform the public about the proposals. On June 14, the five design teams will host 40-minute presentations that are open to the public to describe their proposals. That’s at the Clark County Government Center Chambers from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. From June 15 to June 29, the 1 October Memorial Committee will request public input through an online survey that will ask whether the concepts meet the committee’s mission, vision and goals for the permanent memorial.
The recommended design is scheduled to be on display from Sept. 11 through Oct. 19. The county said the public can reach out to the teams directly to find out about additional community engagement activities they may be hosting as they wrap up the design process this month.
The 1 October Memorial is being created to honor the 58 people who lost their lives and the hundreds of others who were injured in the 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas. The memorial is being funded by the Las Vegas Victims’ Fund, which was established by Clark County in partnership with the National Compassion Fund. (Source)
