WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The Waukesha Parade Commission held a meeting Tuesday night, Feb. 8, discussing how to best memorialize the victims from the parade attack.

Back in December, the temporary parade memorial that was standing in Waukesha's Veterans Park was decommissioned.

The parade commission approved the creation of a more permanent memorial in January.

A member of the parade commission says more meetings will be held to get public input.

"What we're looking for is the city and people here to express their idea of what a memorial is," said Jerri Couri, Waukesha Parade Commission chairman. "And with that -- and fundraise to see what we can do to develop those memorials. Is it one memorial? Is it a series of memorials? Is it youth generated? Is it adult generated? We really don't know, we're waiting for the community to tell us."

He says it will take about 13 months from start to finish.

The first meeting for public input will be in March.
