Things are now moving very quickly. Hendrickson and Pantoja open the Office of Planning and Development (OPD) at 915 Hilby Avenue in Seaside on September 25-in a space selected because it met all the accessibility requirements they had established. The Office of Planning and Development will be the California State University (CSU) office charged with the development of a CSU campus on the former Fort Ord site.

Hank Hendrickson and Maria Pantoja, the only two employees dedicated full-time to the development of the campus, commute together from San Jose every day. "We put 100,000 miles on a brand-new Ford Taurus," recalls Hendrickson.
