To All,
The New York Times has revealed that the LMDC has been in possession of a letter from Governor Pataki's senior advisor for counterterrorism that concluded that the design of the memorial leaves it vulnerable to a terrorist attack. This letter was sent to Stefan Pryor and John Cahill on 3/3. In a perfect example of what the LMDC perceives as its open and democratic process this letter was not even shared with the WTC Memorial Foundation until over a month later on 4/5.
This letter raises many of the same safety and security issues that we have been highlighting over the past few months. The letter also calls on the architects to consider revising several critical aspects of the memorial.
Even though we are concerned with the content of this letter we are even more concerned about what the LMDC did with this information.
Even though Mr. Pryor had this letter in his possession he never mentioned it when questioned at the 3/29 City Council Hearing about all safety and security issues.
Even when the senior executives of the WTC Memorial Foundation received the letter on 4/5 they did not let the public or the families know. So much for the open process!
Not only was this information withheld from the public and the families but it was withheld from the City Council.
Just a few weeks ago the LMDC withheld information about the first of the remains found at 130 Liberty for 5 days.
Our request to know where the debris from the Deutche Bank building is being sent has also been unanswered.
Our inquiry as to how the LMDC can continue to proceed when they appear to be in violation of the Urban Development Corporation Act 174/68 has also gone unanswered.
The LMDC continues to make its own rules and operates behind closed doors, keeping the public and the families out of important decisions.
We cannot allow this to continue.
Our elected officials should not allow them to continue because they are being kept in the dark as well.
