Document Description
The Proposed Project involves development of Phase 1 of the CCC Veterans Cemetery located on approximately 16.9 acres within the northwest corner of the larger 84.4-acre property currently being transferred from the Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) to CalVet. Once constructed, Phase 1 is anticipated to accommodate burials for the next 10 years. Phase 1 would include administration and maintenance facilities, a committal shelter for burial services, and additional elements to honor veterans, including a memorial walk, flag plaza, ceremonial entry, and a 5,000 niche columbarium. The Proposed Project would also include supporting roads and infrastructure. The Proposed Project would be designed and constructed with funds awarded through the State Cemetery Grant Program offered by the USDVA and some State and local funds. Funding for the overall Master Plan is currently not secured and future funding is uncertain. Phase 1 has independent utility from the larger Master Plan. Consequently, this document addresses impacts associated with construction and operation of Phase 1 only.
