Led by Congressman Panetta, the Community Task Force issues a 600-page strategy report on May 22, 1992 that proposes development of a higher education center, including a California State University campus and a University of California, Santa Cruz research center, as the cornerstones for reuse of Fort Ord. This report helps set the direction for many activities that are to follow.

The formal process to obtain federal funding for the conversion and renovation of Fort Ord facilities begins in earnest in June, 1992.
