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 2017 FORA Jobs Survey report summarizes and compares 2015 and 2017 Jobs Survey outcomes as success metrics for Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) economic recovery goals. Primary and secondary research were used including online business searches, email surveys, and in-person/phone communications. The survey area was limited to the former Fort Ord boundary, and reported results include existing and near-term projected full-time (FT) and part-time (PT) positions. Survey results will be incorporated in FORA’s Annual Report as directed by the Base Reuse Plan (BRP) Context and Framework (18.104.22.168 (c), pg. 208).
The Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) and the Institute for Innovation and Economic Development (iiED) at California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) completed a regional coworking space market feasibility report to better understand local market readiness to support investment in coworking facilities.
Results of this study suggest an unmet demand for new coworking spaces in the study area. Neighboring communities with similar demographics have a proliferation of coworking spaces, while the study area has few. Among other indicators, new community development as part of the civilian reuse of the former Fort Ord continues to gain momentum. Seventy percent of survey respondents in this study indicated a desire to use coworking facilities. These trends indicate an existing current demand and growing future demand for coworking spaces. Early market actors could take advantage of the current market and service provision imbalance.
