Fort reuse board looks at former Mass. base Congress expected to vote on final BRAC listing on Nov. 8

EATONTOWN — A onetime military base in Massachusetts that now is host to an industrial park, hotel-conference center, and housing could serve as a model for how Fort Monmouth’s facilities could be revived if it closes as expected.
But whether or not the members of the recently organized Fort Monmouth Reuse Committee (FMRC) look to the former Fort Devens in Massachusetts as a prototype of how to best redevelop a closed military base is not the most pressing issue, according to Eatontown Mayor Gerald Tarantolo, who co-chairs the committee.
What matters is that the FMRC begins planning and working now to make the fort viable and economically profitable as soon as possible after its anticipated closing under the Pentagon’s Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process in 2011, he said.
