As you have probably seen in the papers the LMDC is planning to disband before the end of the year.

Our only question is will anyone notice.

For the past five years the only things that they have “Developed” are convoluted and bureaucratic processes that have produced little or no results at Ground Zero.

Millions have been spent and

We have no finalized plans for the Memorial.

We have no plans in place for the proper removal of remains from the Deutche Bank building and the surrounding area.

We are not sure if there is even money available for the Freedom Tower and the other buildings planned for the site.

We are now told that the future of the site will be controlled by yet another agency created by the LMDC the Lower Manhattan Construction Command Center.

We are told that this agency will be run by a representative of the Port Authority the same Authority that has refused to build under the legal jurisdiction of NYC building and fire codes and continues to ignore all of the security and safety concerns that have been raised over the past 5 years.

The 5th Anniversary approaches and there are wonderful memorials all over the world to honor those lost on that tragic day and all we have in Lower Manhattan is a hole in the ground.

Our advice to the LMDC would be to take a moment and stop patting themselves on the back for a job well done and pick up a dictionary. Look up the word development


The act of developing.
The state of being developed.
A significant event, occurrence, or change.

5 years, millions spent, very little accomplished. It doesn’t sound like development to us.
