Changing the Fort's reuse plan: piece by piece rather than a do-over by Larry Higgs Asbury Park Press (NJ) November 18, 2013Fort Monmouth is made up of 1,126 acres of real estate on two tracts, the Charles Wood area in Tinton Falls and Eatontown and the Main Post in Oceanport and Eatontown. There are more than 350 building on the fort property. About 5,000 jobs were lost when the Army closed the post after 94 years in September 2011. Fort Monmouth was recommended for closure in the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure round. A 2012 government report found that it cost $1.9 billion to close the post and move its research and engineering mission to Aberdeen, Md.
OCEANPORT - Changes to Fort Monmouth’s redevelopment plan will likely be made building by building, and parcel by parcel of land, rather by a wholesale rewriting of the original proposal, officials said.
Officials from Cushman & Wakefeld and the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority said the redoing the plan would be a long process and require approval from officials in the towns where the fort is based - Eatontown, Oceanport and Tinton Falls - as well as the state and the Army. Instead, the precedent has been made to change parts of the plan, when the fort gets a proposal from a developer.
