The Fort Ord Reuse Authority, or FORA, has a brand new website, and there is a “New” item featured right on the “Welcome Page” to which I’d like to draw to your attention. Tomorrow, County Supervisor Dave Potter and Carmel Mayor Jason Burnett will be hosting a town hall meeting to discuss issues relating to the Former Fort Ord. You are definitely invited. The town hall meeting will be held at the Carmel City Hall, and will begin at 5:30 tomorrow afternoon.
Mayor Burnet and Supervisor Potter will discuss topics ranging from the extension of FORA, to a recently-published reassessment of the base reuse plan, to economic development opportunities on the former Fort Ord, to the implications of the designation of the former Fort Ord as a National Monument, to the regional impact of decisions made by the Fort Ord Reuse Authority.
In fact, I think that any and all questions relating to Fort Ord will be in order. The FORA Executive Officer, Michael Houlemard, is scheduled to speak. There is a lot to talk about, and I think that KUSP listeners might want to attend, even if they are not Carmel residents. If you would like to do a bit of “studying up” on Fort Ord, before going to the meeting, you can find links to various materials in today’s Land Use Report blog. As ever, point your browser to kusp.org/landuse.
