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

Visit the BCC 911 Foundation's webpage.

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.   

<span style="font-family: Calibri; font-size: 11pt;" ar-sa;"="" en-us;="" roman";="" new="" "times="" times="">At the end of 2009, a request for steel was sent to The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the steel from the site.  And on February 10, 2011, an escort party consisting of members of the local fire departments, emergency providers  and personnel of local, county and state police, elected officials and community volunteers traveled to Hanger 17 at JFK where the salvaged steel is stored.  The group provided a fitting escort back to Cortlandt Town Hall

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.  View the PRESS RELEASE and VIDEO

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
