Two areas totaling about 430 acres are slated for prescribed burns this season, which spans from July 1 to Dec. 31. According to Naval Postgraduate School meteorologists, this year is a normal weather year conducive to conditions for prescribed burns.
Unit 31, a 103-acre area inside the impact area in the southern portion of the munitions response area near Laguna Seca, is ready to go and for now has priority, according to Bill Collins, Base Realignment And Closure environmental coordinator. Unit A, a 324-acre zone in the northern portion of the Fort Ord National Monument, is being prepared and “will become the priority when it is ready,” Collins said, probably by September.
Economic Development staff have recently completed the annual jobs survey on behalf of FORA's member jurisdictions. Annual reporting of jobs trends is a Base Reuse Plan requirement and survey data helps inform FORA Board policy aimed at supporting jobs growth. This has been another successful year in the Monterey Bay region, manifesting increases in full and part-time jobs.
132 employers and 5652 positions were identified within the former Fort Ord boundary, representing a 14% (694 jobs) increase in total jobs since early 2017, with the majority being full-time positions.
The Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) seeks public input on this review process related to the provision of a roadway intended to be a Northeast-Southwest arterial connector component (formerly known as Eastside Parkway) of the Fort Ord transportation network.

Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) is a regional entity created by State law in 1994 following closure of the former Fort Ord military training base in 1992. FORA is charged with responsibility to plan, finance, manage and oversee conversion of the former military land for community reuse. When established, FORA was envisioned to “sunset” in 20 years under assumptions that certain goals and mandated conditions for reuse were achieved. Due to significant impacts beyond FORA’s direct control, such as an extended national recession, it became clear the originally anticipated goals could not be achieved as scheduled and legislation extended the life of FORA to 2020, again assuming that the mandated and anticipated regional goals could be achieved. The 2020 extension also required that FORA prepare a formal Transition Plan to assure that on-going legally mandated requirements would continue to be funded and addressed within the region.
