The format will be Open House where citizens can come any time between 3:00 and 8:00 to view static displays. A short introductory presentation will be conducted at 3 p.m. and repeated at 6 p.m.
“We remain committed to having this as a very open and transparent process to the public,” says Glenn Oder, Executive Director of the Fort Monroe Authority. “We want our citizens to give us their input about the direction and future of Fort Monroe”, adds Oder.

The full planning team will be available to address citizens’ questions and concerns.
“The master plan and implementation strategy will preserve the historic property, tell the extraordinary Fort Monroe story through enhanced cultural programming, public events, and historic programs, and propose new facilities such as a visitor center to enhance public awareness and increase visitation, and identify economically viable reuse opportunities for the historic buildings and property”, says Fred Merrill, Sasaki Principal in Charge for the project.For more information, contact Phyllis Terrell, 757-251-2754 or PTerrell@fmauthority.com.
