LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - It has been stalled for over a year, but now Nevada and Clark County officials are resuming talks to build a memorial to the victims of the deadly Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting.  

Officials announced a new effort on Thursday to build the memorial, which will remember the 58 victims who died in the shooting, as well as the hundreds that were wounded.

 An official October 1st Memorial Committee will work with victims' families, survivors and others to help form ideas for the memorial. 

The committee will consist of Governor Steve Sisolak, County Commission Chairwoman Marilyn Kirkpatrick, and victim's families, survivors and other members of the community to determine where a permanent memorial will be erected.

The County Commission is scheduled to vote on the formation of the committee at its next meeting on Wednesday.

The 2nd anniversary of the shooting is Tuesday.
