LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) -Clark County’s 1 October Memorial Committee announced Thursday that they will be launching a platform for community submissions of memorial ideas.

The Committee says the goal of the memorial is to honor the victims of the tragedy, their families and first responders.

The first step of the process is a “Call for Creative Expressions” — a pathway that allows for the community to submit their ideas and creations of what they think a memorial should be. Submissions can be done on the memorial’s website and on a mobile app.

“This memorial will be very important for a lot of people as we gather every year to honor all of the progress, healing, grief that’s been processed,” said Karessa Royce, a 1 October survivor and 1 October Memorial Committee Vice Chairman.

“It will also be a place of celebration, a place for us to gather as a community and celebrate how far we’ve come, and honor the 58 people we lost,” said Royce.

Submissions open on July 1.
