Subject: [CPEO-IRF] Ft. Monmouth tug of war
Fort's closing may spark governmental tug of war

WEST LONG BRANCH — Competing interests emerged Monday at a daylong symposium at Monmouth University among elected leaders mulling what should become of Fort Monmouth once it is closed by 2011.

The conference — "Fort Monmouth: Past, Present and in the Future" — was sponsored by the Governor's Commission to Support and Enhance New Jersey's Military and Coast Guard Installations and was attended by nearly 300 elected officials, defense industry representatives and others concerned about a post-fort future.

But while officials agreed that redeveloping the fort's 1,100 acres is important not only to the surrounding municipalities but also to the region and the state, they disagreed about what, or who, should lead that process.
