The Sept. 13 town hall to discuss what a memorial and museum could look like at the gay nightclub Pulse has been rescheduled to Oct. 9 due to Hurricane Irma.

The onePULSE Foundation says in a statement that the town hall in October will still take place at 6 p.m. at the Orlando Repertory Theater on 1001 E. Princeton Street. The event is public, but seating is limited and tickets are required. People who already registered and printed their tickets will not have to register again.

This town hall is one of several meetings Pulse owner Barbara Poma will hold on how to honor the 49 victims killed and countless injured during the mass shooting on June 12, 2016. The discussion on Oct. 9 will reportedly focus on "creating a sanctuary of hope" around the site of the massacre, and will include a forum of experts on museum curations and memorials will be moderated by Indira Lakshmanan.
