Reconstruction Report

As city, state and private property owners began to rebuild the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan — an area critically important to the city's and region's vitality — countless public and private interests were involved and affected. In response, the Design Trust for Public Space initiated the Reconstruction Report, a publication program devoted to enhancing the public's understanding of the procedures and issues involved in the redevelopment efforts.

The project launched in April 2002 and provided timely, unbiased news regarding reconstruction efforts. Over a 14-month period, Reconstruction Report maintained a website and published eight print and electronic newsletters. It functioned as a clearinghouse of information and a voice that linked community interests, and it was informed and used by professional organizations, businesses, downtown residents, and community groups alike.
