The Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) is responsible for the Monterey Bay Region's economic recovery from the Fort Ord Military Installation closure.  The former Fort Ord is a 45 square mile/28,000 acre facility, located on Monterey Bay between the cities of Monterey and Salinas. 


FORA implements this legislatively mandated mission by overseeing replacement land use; assuring compliance with adopted measures; removing physical barriers to reuse; financing and constructing major components of the required infrastructure and basewide demands; and protecting identified environmental reserves. FORA exercises its planning, financing, and monitoring responsibilities under state law authority to meet these objectives in the best interest of the Northern Monterey Bay Community.


The ESCA Remedaition Program is a project of FORA.
