1800 New Homes is Wrong for Oceanport

We the undersigned, oppose the Fort Monmouth Redevelopment Plan because 1640 to 1960 homes included in the Plan will cause harm to the Borough of Oceanport and its taxpayers. Furthermore, the Redevelopment Plan calls for the relocation of the Little Silver Train Station to the Horseneck Point area and includes a 1000 car parking structure. The increase in vehicular traffic connected with the train station and the residential properties will harm the character and small town quality that has attracted homeowners to this community for decades 1640 to 1960 additional households will nearly double the population of Oceanport on less then one seventh of the borough\'s land area. This high density housing is an extreme solution to the closure of Fort Monmouth that does not address the loss of jobs that the closure will cause. This plan benefits the Department of Defense and the developers that will pounce at the opportunity to increase their profits with high density projects.


This Petition is sponsored by the Friends of Mahon, Irace & Bertekap for Oceanport 2007 P.O. Box 334 Oceanport, New Jersey 07757 mibteam@best4oceanport.net Remember to VOTE on Election Day November 6th.
