No on M Reasons

When Fort Ord closed nearly 20 years ago, state and local officials promised our Veterans a California Central Coast Veterans Cemetery to honor their service. Measure M on the November 5th ballot would break that promise.

After years of careful planning by local citizens for re-use of Fort Ord, a small group of extremists wrote Measure M without public input, without public hearings and without any environmental impact report.

Measure M threatens the long-promised California Central Coast Veterans Cemetery by blocking public access as required by the American Disabilities Act for federal funding.

It eliminates critical funding for removal of blighted buildings, management of trails and open space, construction of the Eastside Parkway to reduce congestion on Reservation Road, Imjin Parkway and Hwy 1.

It blocksFirefighter2 development of the Monterey Peninsula College Police and Fire Training Facility.

It endangers thousands of jobs promised as part of the Fort Ord Reuse Plan to make up for jobs lost when the base closed.

According to an independent impact report prepared for the City of Seaside, Measure M would result in the loss of approximately 20,000 Monterey County jobs

Promoters of Measure M claim they want to keep Fort Ord “wild” – but 20,000 of Fort Ord’s 28,000 acres are already permanently protected open space.

In their zeal to block one project, Measure M promoters threaten all the promises made to our community regarding jobs, education facilities and the California Central Coast Veterans Cemetery at Fort Ord.
