Marina, CA – Fort Ord closed in 1994. Today the former Army base is a mix of the present and past. Just off highway one in Marina, a busy shopping center sits across the street from uniform rows of largely abandoned wooden Army buildings. "If the City of Marina and the developer for the Dunes on Monterey Bay Project are lucky there will be a hotel complex here," said Michael Houlemard, Executive Officer of the Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA).
