Two local members of the Flight 93 Federal Advisory Commission resigned because they vehemently disagree with the federal government’s plan to condemn private property in order to build a Flight 93 Memorial. The National Park Service announced that the federal government will condemn land from seven property owners for a Flight 93 memorial. As a result, Somerset County Commissioner Pamela Tokar-Ickes and Stonycreek Township Supervisor Gregory Walker resigned. Both were original members of the 15-person board. “The NPS and the Families of Flight 93 are sensitive to the community’s concerns regarding the use of eminent domain and will work hard to alleviate those concerns,” National Park Service officials wrote.
