Welcome to Oceanport

The Borough of Oceanport, incorporated in 1920,is a predominantly residential community along the shores of the Shrewsbury River.

Oceanport is home of Monmouth Park Racetrack and Fort Monmouth. Though only 3.2 square miles, Oceanport's nearly six thousand residents enjoy not only the Shrewsbury River, but various recreational sports programs, an active senior group and a true feeling of community.

Oceanport boasts various volunteer organizations who give countless man hours to our community making it a place residents are proud to call home.

Mayor's Message

I joined about 50 Oceanport residents for a bus tour of Fort Monmouth on Saturday, March 16th and I believe that if there are more bus tours of this type more Oceanport residents should take advantage of this unique opportunity to get a first-hand look at what has --- and what hasn’t --- taken place in furtherance of the Fort’s redevelopment since the Fort’s closure. By all accounts, those who participated were pleased with what they saw and heard.

The Fort Monmouth property is comprised of approximately 1100 acres, all of which are within the borders of Oceanport, Tinton Falls, and Eatontown. About 430 acres are located within the Borough of Oceanport. When the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority was created by our state legislators in 2010 (over Oceanport’s objections), FMERA was designated as the entity charged with the duty of redeveloping the entire parcel. Boiled down to its essential elements, the net effect of this legislation was that FMERA became the property owner (subject to numerous restrictions) of what was formerly as Fort Monmouth. FMERA’s development of the property is subject to what is known as the “Fort Monmouth Reuse and Redevelopment Plan” which was drawn up and approved in 2008 by another state- created agency called the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Planning Authority (FMERPA). If you’ve been here a while, you may remember the series of public charettes conducted by FMERPA in Oceanport, Tinton Falls, and Eatontown as this Reuse Plan was being constructed. The final document is mind-numbingly long and data intensive. What is most important to remember about this Reuse Plan, however, is its mandate that 720 residential units have to be built in the Oceanport section and that the State of New Jersey’s affordable housing regulations - requiring that 20% of the units must be affordable housing units - apply to the entirety of the property.
