Gilbert is moving ahead with the development of an inspiring 9/11 memorial featuring a beam that was once part of the World Trade Center towers.

The Town Council has approved a design that would allow people to see and touch the beam, or rest on four benches representing the four flights hijacked on Sept. 11, 2001. The memorial will be located near the flag pole by the large lawn at Town Hall, 50 E. Civic Center Drive.

Gilbert's 9/11 Memorial Committee is selling brick pavers as part of a fundraising campaign. The bricks, which can be inscribed with a brief message, will be placed around the memorial.

Information and to purchase a brick: www.gilbertaz.gov/911Memorial.
