Final Two Base Reuse Plan Workshops

The Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) is reassessing the 1997 Fort Ord Base Reuse Plan, and will be holding public workshops to engage the community in the discussion. Please consider coming to any of the workshops listed below to learn more about the Plan and share your views on the reassessment study.


Fort Ord has received greater public scrutiny in the past two years due to County plans to destroy an oak woodland for a bus maintenance yard and commercial office park off of Intergarrison Road.  Public outcry over eliminating open space, particularly in view of the continued presence of abandoned Army barracks, ultimately resulted in a reversal of the Board's decision, but questions remain regarding the best way to approach re-use of this community resource.  This is your opportunity to tell the policy makers what you think should happen on the properties in the former Fort Ord.
