The CDSG leadership has voted to endorse the Citizens for a Fort Monroe National Park (CFMNP). A more formal announcement will probably be in the next newsletter. The CFMNP is an organization we first became familiar with during the Presidio conference in 2006. Like ourselves, they are a consulting party to Fort Monroe's BRAC Section 106 process. Their proposal to local and state officials is a Presidio-like trust system to maintain Fort Monroe after the Army vacates the post in 2011. Although it is currently believed that the NPS will not inherit Fort Monroe, our CDSG leaders agree with the CFMNP that the trust system would be the best long-term solution. The CFMNP is greatly involved with public awareness, and political lobbying. They have strong motivations to prevent the local government from moving forward with residential and commercial redevelopment of historic Fort Monroe and keep it a grand public place. You can view their website at www.cfmnp.org
