  • USMMA Response to Alumni Association & Foundation | U.S. Merchant Marine Academy
    Kings Point alumni and continues to seek out and work with graduates interested in ensuring a strong future for the school Frequently Asked Questions Q What does the Academy need the space for A As part of its ongoing campus wide improvements the Academy needs the space for classrooms while other buildings are renovated Q Why move the Foundation out now A The Academy never signed a lease with the Foundation to use campus space At a time when the Academy is facing space constraints and in order to avoid charges of preferential treatment it has asked the Foundation to find other offices Q Didn t the Foundation offer you 60 000 each year for use of this space A The Foundation s response arrived after the Academy s deadline and included several clauses unacceptable to the Academy including sole rights to the property for the next ten years The Academy will not agree to a lease that removes federal property from its control Q Is it true that the Academy demanded that the Alumni Foundation pay annual rent in the amount of 1 785 168 A No As you can see in the November letter to the Alumni Foundation the Academy proposed an annual rental rate of 29 per square foot which equates to an annual rent of approximately 145 000 The lease inadvertently stated 29 square foot per month If this discrepancy had been pointed out sooner we would have corrected the misperception immediately Q Why isn t the Academy helping the Foundation seek zoning approval for the Lerner House A The Academy values its relationship with both its alumni and the Kings Point community and believes this issue is best resolved between the two involved parties Q The Foundation says this is a punitive effort coming from the Academy and Department of Transportation what do you have to say to that A Since he first visited the Academy in 2009 Secretary LaHood has worked to secure record funding to rebuild campus infrastructure that hadn t been touched since it was built in the 1940s Thanks to his efforts the Academy will have a new pier a new ship renovated barracks a new dining hall and now new academic spaces Both the Secretary and the Superintendent have reached out to all Kings Point alumni to emphasize their willingness to work together to ensure a strong future for the school an invitation that remains open today Q Why did you change the date the Foundation needed to leave from June to April A Our original June offer was made in the expectation that the Foundation would begin helping the Academy by paying rent and utilities In the four months since then the Foundation refused to pay rent or work in good faith with us to offer a suitable alternative to our current space situation The Academy subsequently received additional appropriated funding for renovations under the continuing resolution for Fiscal Year 2013 approved by Congress last month The additional funding
