Las Vegas, NV - An exhibit featuring five design concepts for a permanent memorial to remember those who perished in the events of 1 October 2017 opened this week in the Clark County Government Center.
The public is invited to visit the exhibition in-person from Monday through Thursday, 7:30am to 5:30pm daily. The public can also learn more details about each concept online at www.ClarkCountyNV.gov/1OctoberMemorial. The names of the participating teams are: Aaron Neubert Architects+studioSTIGSGAARD, JCJ Architecture, OLIN, Paul Murdoch Architects and SWA Group.
Clark County’s 1 October Memorial Committee started the process last summer to gather ideas from the public and professional teams for the memorial.
Clark County is hosting a design team presentation event on Wednesday, June 14, in Clark County Commission Chambers from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Each team will offer 40-minute presentations about their proposals. The event will be carried live on Clark County Television (CCTV) and online at www.youtube.com/user/ClarkCountyNV/live and on the 1 October Memorial Committee’s Facebook page @1OctoberMemorial.
Following the presentation, the public can take part in a short online community engagement survey. A link to the survey will be on the committee’s website from June 15 – 29. Participants will be asked whether the concepts meet the committee’s mission, vision and goals for the permanent memorial. The results of the survey will be incorporated into the evaluation process. The evaluation scores will be presented to the 1 October Memorial Committee on Wednesday, July 26, 9 a.m. in Clark County Commission Chambers. The committee’s recommendation is scheduled to be submitted to the County Commission on Tuesday, Sept. 5. The recommended design for the 1 October Memorial project will be on display in the Rotunda as part of the exhibit to commemorate the 6th anniversary of the tragedy.
