(6/16/2003)

Judging from the results a meeting held between local community groups in Kuta on June 7, 2003, no shared vision exists on what, if anything, should be done with the plots of land where the Sari Club and Paddi's Night Club stood prior to the tragic bombing of October 12, 2002.

Among the ideas put forth include rebuilding the ill-fated night spots, creating a park space open to the public, or erecting a monument that commemorates the 202 people who died as a result of the terrorist attack.

While a consensus on what should be done with the location was not evident at the meeting, all seemed to agree that now, 8 months after the tragedy, is the time for the future use for the land to be finally decided and construction to begin.

Similar calls a decision to be made on the future use of the land have been made recently by the various foreign counsels stationed in Bali representing countries that lost citizens in the October 2002 attack.

According to representatives of various non-governmental organziations (NGO) who attended the meeting, the provincial government has set aside Rp. 2 billion (approximately US$ 238,000) for the renewal of the bomb sites.
