FORA Transition Planning Process
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.
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.
