City officials revealed Monday part of the plans to mark the ninth anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

Family members will be joined at the podium by those involved with the rebuilding efforts at the World Trade Center site for the reading of the names of those lost.

Relatives of victims will be paired up with architects and construction workers among others.

In a letter sent to the families, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Governor David Paterson said the ceremony should recognize the progress that has been made in building a World Trade Center memorial.

The reading of the victims' names has become the staple of the remembrance ceremonies. At first only relatives were involved, but in recent years volunteers and emergency service workers were invited to participate.

However, some family members said architects, engineers and construction workers have no place beside the victims' relatives.

The ceremony will take place at Zuccotti Park, just south of the World Trade Center site.

Officials said they are working to provide access to the upper level of the Memorial Plaza for family members.

The "Tribute In Light" will also shine at sundown into the next morning.
