The realities of dealing with Fort Monroe|
Opinion by Michael C. Bobrick Hampton Roads Daily Press (VA) December 9, 2006
In response to Scott Butler's letter "Group's plan for a Fort Monroe Park," Nov. 30. Can the community afford a feasibility study for Fort Monroe? Butler and the Citizens for a Fort Monroe National Park continue to press for a federal feasibility study to examine whether a trust modeled after the Presidio of San Francisco would be a viable option for Fort Monroe, but there is no information provided as to how long it may take to accomplish such a study. Meanwhile, Butler inaccurately asserts that a feasibility study won't cost Hampton or the commonwealth of Virginia a cent. Apparently, Butler chooses to ignore the established process for the disposal of Base Realignment and Closure property.
The Department of Defense published an implementation regulation that establishes the ground rules for the property disposal process associated with the realignment and closure decisions that became law in November 2005.
