UPDATE: Piece of Steel Beam Returning to 9/11 Memorial

Local News

UPDATE: The Green Bay Parks Committee has approved the proposal to return a piece of steel beam from one of the fallen Twin Towers to the 9/11 Memorial.

The Committee says that beam will return to the Memorial under the condition that the city raises $100,000 for renovation plans. The committee also ruled that Alderman John Vander Leest — who proposed the steel beam be returned — will develop a fundraising plan within the next 30 days.


The Green Bay Parks Committee will discuss renovation plans for the city’s 9/11 Memorial Wednesday night. 

Last year, the memorial was decommissioned and a piece of steel beam from one of the fallen Twin Tower moved to the lobby of the Green Bay Police Department. As part of the renovation plans, Alderman John Vander Leest has proposed to return the beam back to the monument. City leaders are hoping to raise $100,000 to either rebuild or replace the memorial. 

The Parks Committee’s meeting will take place Wednesday at 5 p.m.
