Welcome to the 9/11 Remembrance Memorial Committee webpage for the Town of Cortlandt, Village of Croton-on-Hudson and Village of Buchanan. 

The Town and the Villages embarked upon a mission to create a 9/11 Memorial utilizing surviving steel from the World Trade Center site  To officially initiate the process, on September 7, 2010, Town Supervisor, Linda Puglisi sent out a PRESS RELEASE outlining the goals and the steps necessary to create the Memorial. 

The dimensions of the steel beam, which weighs approximately one ton,  are 14 feet long, 2” thick, 10” high and 27” wide.   The steel will be incorporated into a design that will provide a powerful and lasting memorial. 


To accomplish the task of designing and funding this memorial, the municipalities formed a Task Force comprised of community volunteers.  View the Task Force PRESS RELEASE.  To support the efforts of the Task Force, two committees were established:  the Executive Committee and Staff Committee  View the Structure of Committees.
