Join us at the Community Involvement Mobile Workshop for an open house and free 90 minute guided bus tours. This event is free. No reservations are required. We’ll be talking about groundwater cleanup and landfill maintenance. We’ll also make a stop at our new groundwater treatment facility that began operations in November 2019. RAIN OR SHINE!
TOUR DEPARTURE TIMES: Each tour is the same, so pick a time that works for you. This is a popular tour. As such, it is important that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to tour departure to secure your seat on the bus.
Tour 1: 10:00 a.m.
Tour 2: 11:45 a.m.
TO GET THERE FROM HIGHWAY 1: Take exit 406 and stay on Lightfighter Drive. Pass General Jim Boulevard. Turn left onto 8th Avenue. Turn right onto Joe Lloyd Way. Building 4522 is at the end of the road. You can also follow the signs.
Stockade Hazardous Material and Building Removal
The work has three phases 1) the removal of hazardous materials not including tenacious asbestos skim coat (or wall plaster) unique to Fort Ord Buildings, 2) the removal of tenacious asbestos skim coat (or wall plaster), and 3) the demolition and removal of the buildings. Each phase will have its own start date and the start is dependent upon FORA funding availability and approval. FORA has funds to complete phase 1. Because funding for phase 2 and 3 is not available at this time, phase 2 and 3 will have separate mobilization and demobilization line items which will be treated as additive or subtractive options depending on the time of FORA approvals. The lowest lump sum for all three phases will be awarded the contract. FORA member agencies may utilize the qualifications for future work and may add change orders to the contract on a time and material basis or by negotiated “not to exceed” contract amendments.
NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY OF DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT/ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REPORT (DRAFT EIS/EIR)
A joint Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report (EIS/EIR) has been prepared to analyze the effects of the Proposed Action, which is the issuance of Federal and State incidental take permits (ITPs) by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) under Section 10(a)(1)(B) of the Federal Endangered Species Act, and by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) under Section 2081 of the California Fish and Game Code in compliance with the California Endangered Species Act. The issuance of the ITPs would authorize take of the eight State and Federally listed species identified in the Draft Fort Ord Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan (Draft HCP) during the course of the redevelopment of the former Fort Ord military base. The Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) and its member jurisdictions have prepared the Draft HCP as a required component of the application for the Federal ITP. The USFWS is acting as lead agency under National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and FORA is acting as lead agency under California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).Read More Download Notice
