Almost two weeks have passed since the tragic Pulse shooting, but there is already a permanent memorial in the works.

On June 24, the City announced a partnership with the Orange County Regional History Center to collect letters, notes, signs and other non-perishable items from the different memorials throughout Orlando.

There hasn't been a timeline or location announced but in order to make this memorial, "this process will take time and should not be rushed," Buddy Dyer wrote on the City of Orlando website.

There will be a community-based committee established to oversee the process of making a memorial which will pay tribute to the victims, survivors, families and the entire community.
