Barbara Poma, owner of Pulse Orlando nightclub, where 49 people tragically lost their lives in a terrorist attack in June 2016, is planning to reopen the venue in a new location.

Her plan immediately after the attack was to reopen the building on site, but a spokeswoman said to the Orlando Sentinel that this idea was quickly abandoned.

Poma did launch the onePulse Foundation charity to help families and victims, and previously clarified that the site would include a memorial and a museum.

OnePulse Foundation will also post an online public survey, looking for public input regarding the original Pulse site.

Jason Felts, board member of onePulse Foundation stated: “This project is not about replacing a building or a fun hangout for the gay community.

“This project is about healing Central Florida, the LGBT community, the Latino community.”

Poma is scouting for new locations “somewhere in central or urban Orlando,” a spokeswoman said.
