A Permanent Copley Marathon Memorial: What Would You Like?

The growing makeshift memorial to those impacted by the Boston Marathon bombings in Copley Square.

Discussions to create a permanent Boston Marathon memorial have not yet taken place in City Hall.

While the memorial in Copley Square is still growing, the city’s archivist has been regularly making sure paper materials and other delicate items are protected. 

In order to preserve the well-wishes and notes left for Boston, the city created a Tumblr page to document the memorial in Copley Square to effectively memoralize the memorial. 

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has made it clear that whatever memorial is made will respect the wishes of the victims and survivors of the bombings. When discussions about creating a permanent memorial begin survivors and victim families are going to be asked for feedback and thoughts, a city official told Patch. 

So what would you like to see for a permanent Boston Marathon bombings memorial in Copley Square? Would you want to see statues?Would you like to see a monument erected? A glass-enclosed memorial of the items left at the temporary memorial? Tell us in the comments.
