Staff Advisory Committees

FMERA currently has four Staff Advisory Committees: Environmental, Historic Preservation, Housing and Veterans. These committees are comprised of Board Members as well as members of the public, and each committee is Chaired by a Board Member. Committee composition is determined by the Authority in accordance with its by-laws. The purpose of the Staff Advisory Committees is to address issues related to the redevelopment and reuse of Fort Monmouth, and help the staff resolve those issues. Additionally, as required by the Authority’s enabling Act and by-laws, the Historic Preservation and Environmental Staff Advisory Committees serve as the exclusive “historic preservation commission” and the “environmental commission” for land use matters within the project areas.

Unless otherwise indicated, the Staff Advisory Committee Meetings are not open to the Public, but each Chairperson reports out to the Board, and to the Public, on the Committee’s activities and findings at the monthly meetings of the Authority. The committees do not have the authority to take any action binding FMERA.
