TINTON FALLS: The following is a press release from the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA):
Trinity Hall, an all-girls college preparatory high school located on the former Fort Monmouth military base,plans to expand the facility to accommodate its growing enrollment by constructing a 2-story addition with a footprint of 11,230 square feet and a total area of 22,460 square feet. The addition will include additional classrooms, office/administrative space, a multipurpose room, a chapel and a new entrance lobby.
In February 2015, Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) issued a Request for Offers to Purchase ("RFOTP") for Building 2290, the former Child Development/Daycare Center on Fort Monmouth. The parcel consisted of 7.4± acres of land and a 19,600-square-foot, one-story building constructed in 1996. The Fort Monmouth Reuse and Redevelopment Plan (the "Reuse Plan") contemplated reuse of the Building 2290 as a child care/school facility.
Following Board approval of a Purchase and Sale & Redevelopment Agreement, FMERA sold the property to Trinity Hall on February 27, 2015. Trinity renovated and opened the facility in time for the 2015 - 2016 school year.
"The opening of Trinity Hall marked another milestone in the Fort's redevelopment," said FMERA Director of Real Estate Dave Nuse. "Bringing an excellent school on-site was essential to developing the dynamic community we've envisioned for both the Fort and the Borough of Tinton Falls."
"Since its inception, Trinity Hall has been a school that provides opportunity. Once we moved to our permanent and forever home on historic Fort Monmouth, we realized just how much opportunity we can provide to our greater community," said Head of School, Mary Sciarrillo. "We are excited and thrilled with the Tinton Falls Planning Board's vote allowing us to expand our campus. We remain committed to our students and their families and are ready to be a resource for local businesses, non-profits, municipal leadership, educators and the community. We vow to be good neighbors and responsible citizens as we help to revitalize this beautiful town. We feel fortunate to be in Tinton Falls and feel blessed to have the support of this community."
