Gov. Jon Corzine is scheduled to appear at the Lincroft campus of Brookdale Community College tomorrow morning to “outline his vision” for the redevelopment of Fort Monmouth and to answer questions from the public, the Asbury Park Press reports today.


Local officials apparently haven’t been clued into what Corzine will say, but they’re not expecting to hear anything that undermines their goal of turning the 1,100-plus-acre facility into a center for technology R&D.

From the story:

Corzine will “outline what we’ve done so far and what there is yet to do to ensure the redevelopment of Fort Monmouth is the driver of high-tech jobs in the region and the state,” said Brendan Gilfillan, a Corzine spokesman.

“It will be interesting to see what direction the governor will take, and I hope there’s no surprises,” [Tinton Falls Mayor Peter Maclearie said. “It seems to be the state is moving with us (the redevelopment authority), and I’d like to think we’re partners in the process.”

The event will take place in the Donald D. Warner Student Life Center and is scheduled to begin at 8:30a. Here’s a campus map. For parking, lot 7 is the best bet, followed by lot 6.

No large bags, backpacks or signs are permitted.
