The people in charge of Fort Monmouth's future are moving their offices next week with hopes to be in their permanent main post digs in the new year.
The Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) will move to two separate temporary offices: one in Eatontown near the Sheraton Hotel and one on Army property located on the east side of Oceanport Avenue near Horseneck Point Road.
A statement from the authority regarding the move:
FMERA will be moving its marketing and real estate operations to its new office at 15 Christopher Way, Eatontown, beginning on September 20, 2012. The temporary location is fully accessible to members of the public, and FMERA’s telephone number remains the same: (732) 720-6350. The remainder of the FMERA staff will temporarily occupy office space on the former Fort property in the Army’s Caretaker Office at no cost.
At its August meeting, the FMERA Board approved the five-month lease with 550 Realty Corp. for 1,800 square feet of office space. FMERA hopes to move to its permanent location at the former Fort library in Oceanport by February 2013.
The existing lease agreement at Corbett Way in Eatontown, which the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Planning Authority (FMERPA) entered into in August 2007, expired on August 31, 2012.
