Council takes stand on Fort Monroe's future
The future of Fort Monroe after the Army leaves it in September 2011 remains uncertain, with major questions hovering over who will pay for new infrastructure and services.
But a vision for the future that is rooted heavily in the past is gathering shape.
Last Wednesday, the City Council affirmed its commitment to preservation by issuing a resolution to support the National Park Service unit in the reuse of Fort Monroe, and to encourage a focus on African-American history at the fort.
By supporting a National Park Service presence at Fort Monroe, the city is in line with the Fort Monroe Federal Area Development Authority, which supported the move last year.
