Agency seeks tourist input on Fort Monroe
The agency overseeing Fort Monroe's transfer to state control will soon begin work on an interpretive master plan, and is seeking input on what tourists should experience when they visit.
The Army is leaving the 570-acre historic waterfront post in 2011.
The master planning process is expected to take about nine months, said Bill Armbruster, executive director of the Fort Monroe Federal Area Development Authority. A firm called Interpretive Solutions has been selected to develop the master plan and a business plan.
The public is invited to a town-hall meeting Thursday at Hampton's Crowne Plaza Marina Hotel, 700 Settlers Landing Road.
Suggested themes for educational services will be outlined, and the public can vote on which types of visitor experiences should be given priority.
The open-house-style meeting runs from 4 to 7 p.m.
