Mayor Dyer and the city of Orlando has given an update on its efforts to drive forward its plans for a permanent Pulse memorial, reasuring the community that the city remains committed to the development of the permanent memorial at the Pulse site and doing it in a thoughtful, planned, transparent and timely manner.  


Since the city’s acquisition of the Pulse site in October, several actions have occurred to move this process forward, including consultations with the soon to be disoveld OnePulse Foundation on November 27, where the OnePulse Foundation Board agreed to share memorial design work with the city


Mayor Dyer believes the best approach to creating a memorial at the Pulse site is for the City of Orlando to lead the process. To do this, the city will utilize its existing 501c3 and establish the Orlando United Pulse Memorial Fund.  This will allow for interested businesses, community organizations and individuals to contribute financially towards the creation of the memorial.


Critical to the creation of a permanent memorial at the Pulse site that honors the victims, those impacted by the tragedy and pays tribute to the resiliency of Orlando is working with the victims’ families and survivors.  To further that effort, the city is finalizing a process for engaging and communicating with the victims’ families, the survivors and first responders for the memorial process. 


To start, the city has established a dedicated webpage to collect contact information that can be reached at cityoforlando.gov/pulsememorial.


Another main goal of the meeting with OnePulse Foundation Board was to understand the impacts of their organization’s dissolution on thAnnual Remembrance Ceremony and the CommUNITY 5k Run, and to ensure that the ceremony and fun run continues, the city will work in partnership with UCF DeVos Sport Business Management Program to enure that both events continue in 2024.
