The memorial, promised to be complete by 2011, has a hang up. The Dept of interior hasn't been able to convince all the property owners to let go of their property. Bad on the property owners, right? Well, not entirely. The US Government wants not less than 2,000 acres for the memorial. Two thousand acres at 2,000 x 43,560 square feet per acre is equivalent to a strip of land a thousand feet wide by just a little less than 17 miles long. By comparison the WWII Memorial sits on 7.4 acres in Washington, D.C., so the proposed Shanksville memorial will be 270 times larger than the WWII memorial. Flight 93 came down at a steep angle digging a deep crater in the ground, so not much ground was actually directly affected. Some of the property owners don't believe they are getting market value for their land, and are less than willing to sell. Sec Salazar and Sen. Specter are meeting with the property owners to try to reach an agreement, before imposing eminent domain seizure. For the record, I support the memorial, but I question the need for such a large memorial and the huge transfer of land by coercion by the government; it seems to be an over reach to me.
