The group converting the battleship USS New Jersey into a museum and memorial will meet publicly outside Camden for the first time this month.
The Home Port Alliance will meet Wednesday night at Rowan University. The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. in Room 153 of the Wilson Music Building.
The alliance, a South Jersey nonprofit coalition co- chaired by state Sen. John Matheussen, R-Gloucester, is refurbishing the ship and building a new pier in Camden. The historic ship - the most decorated battleship in U.S. naval history - is to open in September.
"The Home Port Alliance is committed to those counties closest to the ship's permanent home and wants residents to have a chance to address the board and ask questions in their own county," said alliance program director Jack Shaw.
