The new fence is being installed on Monday, Sept. 19, by city officials, the owners of Pulse, the Downtown South Main Street District program and the Orange County Regional History Center. The site of the massacre currently has flimsy black material on the fence on which mourners have written messages with chalk.
"The new fence will be significantly reduced in size; ensuring residents, visitors and employees and patrons of the surrounding businesses can safely visit and navigate around the site by foot or vehicle," the city says in a statement
. "Visitors to the memorial are reminded to be considerate of the surrounding businesses and to adhere to all parking and traffic regulations."
