The U.S. Army hereby notifies the public of its intent to lease a portion of the former Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, which includes a “Carve Out” known as Parcel 16 to the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA). The property proposed to be leased includes a small parcel of land (approximately 0.285 acres) that requires further environmental action prior to transfer. The property is adjacent to an ongoing redevelopment project at Fort Monmouth and FMERA requires access to the property prior to transfer to support the adjacent redevelopment. A draft Finding of Suitability to Lease (FOSL) has been prepared to document the environmental conditions of the property and its suitability for lease.

The draft FOSL is available for a 30-day public review and comment period commencing on May 21, 2021 and ending on June 21, 2021. The document can be viewed by clicking “View Draft FOSL” below.

The U.S. Army hereby notifies the public of its intent to convey by quitclaim deed a portion of the former Fort Monmouth, which includes a former “Carve Out” known as the Group 4 Carve Out consisting of property in a portion of Parcel 57, to the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA). The property proposed to be transferred includes small portions of property that were formerly designated as “Carve Out” since it had yet to be fully evaluated as to the environmental condition and were carved out from property previously transferred. The property has been fully evaluated and determined to be suitable for transfer. The Army plans to convey approximately 5.1 acres under an Economic Development Conveyance. A draft Finding of Suitability to Transfer (FOST) has been prepared to document the environmental conditions of the property and its suitability for transfer.

The draft FOST is available at the link below.
