Brief Lockdown Today @ Lakehurst Military Base

The Asbury Park Press reports that the Lakehurst section of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst was locked down this morning. There are very few details, and we'll follow up if there is something critical, but point to this as the type of incident that raised red flags to NOPE in terms of logistics of the U.S. Navy's early plan to convert Laurelwood military housing to civilian rentals from 2010-2040 and, by contract, grant unimpeded access thru the federal base to civilians.

Separately, NOPE continues to track developments in the Navy-Laurelwood Homes, LLC buyout negotiations, as well as the stalled NJ Treasury legislation in the Assembly in Trenton, and will post updates once we learn anything new. Again, thanks to those that continue to support our cause and visit our blog as we see through the conclusion of the buyout and demolition of Laurelwood homes.
