In preparation for the 1 October Memorial Committee’s first meeting on Oct. 28, Clark County unveiled a special section on its website to support the committee’s activities and efforts to gather extensive public input from victims’ loved ones, survivors and community members on ideas and recommendations to create a lasting memorial in the Las Vegas Valley.

The Clark County Commission appointed a seven-member committee in October 2019 to gather input from the public and develop recommendations for a permanent memorial.

The goal of a permanent memorial is to remember those who perished in the events of 1 October 2017, to honor the many heroes who inspired the nation with their bravery and all those whose lives were changed forever, and to celebrate the resiliency and compassion of our community.

Starting Oct. 28, the committee will meet at 9 a.m. in the Commission Chambers on the fourth Wednesday each month at the Clark County Government Center, 500 Grand Central Parkway in downtown Las Vegas.

The meetings will be carried live on Clark County Television (CCTV), the County’s YouTube channel, and on the committee’s Facebook page @1OctoberMemorial.

The meetings will be recorded for on-demand re-play on YouTube and for posting in a section on the committee website pages. The 1 October Memorial Committee web pages are located here.
