Weighing in on future of FORA Organization's extension, structure focus of forum By JIM JOHNSON Monterey Herald (CA) December 2, 2011Most of those who attended Thursday's forum on the future of the Fort Ord Reuse Authority seemed to agree it should be extended past its expiration date in 2014.
But there was broad disagreement about exactly how FORA's authority should be extended, and whether significant changes to its governance structure and its overarching vision should, or even could, be revised.

A small amount of time was allotted for audience questions.
