Clark County Commissioners are inviting the public to sign a banner with messages of support for the community of Parkland, Fla., as they cope with the aftermath of the school shooting that occurred there.
Clark County Commissioners signed the 6-foot banner this morning prior to the start of their Commission meeting. The banner features Clark County's orange and blue logo, the Vegas Strong golden heart symbol and an illustration of the Las Vegas Strip's skyline.
The public is invited to stop by the Clark County Government Center all week to sign the banner. The banner will be located on tables inside the Government Center Rotunda on the first floor of the building, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas, NV 89155.
The shooting occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Feb. 14.
