 STONE HARBOR — Community opposition promoted officials to change the location of a proposed Sept. 11 memorial in Stone Harbor.

“There were some concerns in the community about the size and scope of our project which would have also created a passive park and a beautiful point for tribute and reflection at our original location for the memorial,” said Stone Harbor Mayor Suzanne Walters. “We listened, and we responded appropriately. Our community can now enthusiastically support the true goal of this memorial…an everlasting tribute to Americans and their families who were personally impacted by the events of Sept. 11, 2001.”
