Easton (AP) - A Connecticut man whose son died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks is criticizing officials in his hometown for taking too long in deciding on a site for a proposed 9/11 memorial.
Lee Hanson's son, Peter, was on one of hijacked planes with his wife, Sue Kim, and their young daughter, Christine. Peter Hanson grew up in Easton, Conn., and was living in Groton, Mass., with his family.
Lee Hanson pleaded with Easton's Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday night to end the town's protracted debate over the memorial site. Officials have been debating whether the memorial should be located in front of the town library.
Discussions about the site have been lagging for about two years with recent talk centering on grading, septic problems and other issues with the library site.
