New York Governor David Paterson said he will soon meet with developers of a proposed Islamic center and mosque near the former World Trade Center, a spokesman said Tuesday.

Paterson's office declined to say what the meeting would be about, but Republican Rep. Peter King told The Associated Press that the governor wants to discuss possible alternate locations for the Park51 Islamic cultural center and mosque. King said he spoke with the governor Tuesday.

Representatives of the project said no meeting had been scheduled.
