Hayward, 9/11 Memorial agreement finalized
Submitted By Michael Emerson
The city of Hayward has agreed to move forward on the design and construction of a downtown memorial honoring the lives lost as result of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. The City Council approved the project in July, after receiving a positive recommendation from the Planning Commission, but details took time to work out. An agreement was signed Wednesday, Sept 4, 2013.
The Hayward 9/11 Memorial will be located on downtown city land along Mission Boulevard near D Street, adjacent to the old city hall and Giuliani Park. Its design includes four black granite monuments, each representing the four plane attacks on the Twin Towers in New York, the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania and a flag pole in the center of a red granite base, with several red granite benches on the perimeter.
