Flight 93 Memorial turns into debate over eminent domain.
The effort by the National Park Service to establish a memorial for the victims of the 9/11 crash of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania. The plans are to creat a 2,200 acre memorial and park. The looming 10th anniversary of the tragedy is apparently pushing the project to get completed. Controversy now stems from the fact that seven property owners of about 500 acres have been unable to reach negotiated settlements with the Park Service to sell their properties. The debate is now raging whether taking property rights is a proper “memorial” to the victims of Flight 93. The National Park Service has indicated it will move forward with plans to initiate eminent domain actions to acquire the properties.
