As of this morning, the city of Orlando began construction on restoring the location of the Pulse Nightclub. Back in June 2016, this club fell victim to a mass shooting where dozens of people were injured or killed.
The site has remained closed since the incident until days ago when the fence surrounding it was torn down allowing the public to view the site.
A new fence bearing photos and messages will stand around the property for the next 60 days in memory of those impacted. Then after the site will go under full construction to become a permanent memorial and museum.
Pulse Nightclub owner, Barbara Poma, spoke out saying,
"It will be nice for Pulse not to look like a crime scene anymore, but (to look like) a place that you can come and memorialize."

Monday, February 26, 2018, will mark the first day of construction on the Pulse Interim Memorial. This temporary memorial will give families, survivors, first responders, and thousands of visitors space to pay their respects while planning & design of the permanent memorial are underway.
