LWVMC Position on the Sunset of FORA

The League studied the reuse of Fort Ord in 1992 and updated its position in 2018 to address whether or not the Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) should sunset in 2020. FORA’s performance during its 24 year history was assessed based on six governance criteria. The League also studied ways to transfer FORA’s responsibilities to other agencies after it sunsets.

The LWVMC believes that FORA should sunset at the statutory date in 2020 based on an evaluation of its past performance and the availability of alternatives to undertake FORA responsibilities.
