|SENDING ON BEHALF OF NORMA MANIGAN --
I hope you are all having a blessed holiday season and staying warm. I think it is too early for this much snow but what do I know!
So our news and our new project concerns the WTC family room. As you know, it has moved around the site several times to accommodate the construction. It currently sits on a lot two blocks south of the World Trade Center. The Port Authority rented that empty lot to use for the family room and other construction-related housing. The owner of the lot told the Port Authority that we will not be able to renew our agreement with him and we are currently working out the dates for removal of our property. The construction needs are being housed in offices at Nassau Street.
One suggestion is to move the family room - in tact - to hangar 17 at JFK where it is climate-controlled and secured and would be available for family visits. Although Chris Ward has given us the task to reduce the amount material in hangar 17, he has agreed to house the family room there. However, we do need to decide on a final disposition for the room and its content. This is your room and we certainly donít want to be the ones making this decision.
This option would be that the Port Authority would move the family room to the hangar 17 and secure it there while we set up a committee of family members to research options and decide what will happen to the room and its contents. A decision on the ultimate disposition of the room would have to be made by September of 2010 and the room moved out of hangar 17 by September 2011.
Let me know if you have any questions, if you want to serve on the committee, or if you have any other options that we can consider.
Thanks, as always
