The article reports on the redevelopment of the Army base in Monmouth Country to transform into an economic activity center in New Jersey. The move is undertaken attributed to the bill enacted by Governor Chris Christie that would create Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority. In this connection, lawmakers formed a 13-member board who will oversee the transfer of the fort and the establishment of a working agreement with the state's Economic Development Authority.
