OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) - The title for the remaining half of a fort that once served as headquarters for the U.S. Army is expected to be transferred in June.

Officials with the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority tell the Asbury Park Press (https://on.app.com/1RWARCH ) that the Army planned to transfer the original transfer of Eatontown’s Fort Monmouth by the end of last year. The Army closed the fort in 2011.

The remainder of the Main Post will be sold to the state authority under the second phase of its redevelopment plan. That price hasn’t been released.

The authority voted on Wednesday to negotiate exclusively with a developer proposing to turn the property into The Promenade at Fort Monmouth.

The proposal includes trails, plazas, open space, public art, and fountains. Thirteen buildings would be demolished.
