The results of the local community's reuse planning, which began in late 1992, was considered in establishing future land use scenarios at former Fort Ord. Fort Ord Reuse Group (FORG) was established in October 1992 by Monterey County and the cities of Marina, Seaside, Del Rey Oaks, Monterey, and Sand City as a cooperative planning committee. FORG submitted its Initial Base Reuse Plan to the Army on March 24, 1993. The FORG Plan was the local community's draft reuse plan and contains additional possible future land uses at Fort Ord that were not presented in the final Environmental Impact Statement.
In April 1994, the Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) was created by the passage of State Senate Bill SB-899. FORA, a 13-member board representing Monterey County and the cities of Marina, Seaside, Carmel, Del Rey Oaks, Sand City, Monterey, Pacific Grove, and Salinas, has been given the responsibility for implementing the local community's reuse planning. An updated Fort Ord Base Reuse Plan was completed by FORA in June 1997.
