In May, the State of New Jersey took a significant step forward in the redevelopment of Fort Monmouth when the Memorandum of Agreement transferring the property from the U.S. Army to FMERA was formally signed. The momentous occasion marked a new day at the Fort, and strengthened FMERA's ability to carry out our mission to create an atmosphere in which employers will employ and investors will invest, to maximize the jobs created and the value of the property.
The FMERA team remains committed to the highest level of transparency and accountability, and with increased activity and interest, we feel an even greater responsibility to keep all of our stakeholders informed and engaged in the redevelopment process. In support of this vital tenet, we are pleased to share with you the first issue of FMERA's monthly newsletter. This publication will feature important Board actions and other noteworthy highlights, and is available on our website via the "Newsletter" menu option (under News & Publications.)
Together, we are embarking on a new future for the Fort; and collectively, we will recreate this area as a new source of jobs, investment and community pride for the residents of Monmouth County and across New Jersey.
Over the coming months, we look forward to sharing with you the tremendous progress that is taking shape at Fort Monmouth through this and other vehicles. We look forward to hearing your feedback and hope you enjoy the first issue of FMERA's newsletter.
