LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – Clark County Commissioners are inviting the public to sign a banner with messages of support for the community of Parkland, Florida, as students, parents, teachers and residents cope with the aftermath of the school shooting there last week.

Clark County Commissioners signed the 6-foot banner Tuesday 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 sign will be located on tables inside the Government Center Rotunda on the first flood of the building, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas, Nevada 89155. The center is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.

The shooting happened at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Valentine’s Day.

News of the shooting in Florida prompted some calls to the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center.
