Subject: [CPEO-MEF] REUSE: Ft. Monmouth (NJ) Revitalization Authority seeks transfers
FMERA seeking early sale of fort properties

Golf course, Howard Commons housing being considered

Atlanticville (NJ)
June 23, 2011
With Fort Monmouth’s closure rapidly approaching, officials with the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) are stepping up efforts to sell off portions of the 1,129-acre property.

At the authority's June 15 meeting, Frank Cosentino, director of plans and programs for FMERA, explained that the Army is preparing a FOST(Finding of Suitability to Transfer) for three sites on the property: the Sun Eagles Golf Course, the Howard Commons housing area, both Eatontown, and the Fort Monmouth Marina in Oceanport.

"They must have a FOST, which is in essence a clean bill of health for each of the properties," he said.

Matrix Design Group, the consulting firm hired to help implement the fort reuse plan, is studying the sites, and the transfer of property from theArmy must be approved by the N.J. Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).
