California Government Code
(a) After the board has adopted a reuse plan pursuant to this title, any revision or other change to that plan which only affects territory lying within the jurisdiction of one member agency may only be adopted by the board if one of the following conditions is satisfied:
(1) The revision or other change was initiated by resolution adopted by the legislative body of the affected member agency and approved by at least a majority affirmative vote of the board.
(2) The revision or other change was initiated by the board or any entity other than the affected member agency and approved by at least a two-thirds affirmative vote of the board.
(b) (1)Notwithstanding any provision of law allowing any city or county to approve development projects, no local agency shall permit, approve, or otherwise allow any development or other change of use within the area of the base that is not consistent with the plan as adopted or revised pursuant to this title. Except as required by state or federal law, other than state law authorizing cities and counties to approve development projects, the board shall be the final judge of this consistency with the requirements of this title. The board may adopt regulations to ensure compliance with the provisions of this title. No local agency shall permit, approve, or otherwise allow any development or other change of use within the area of the base that is outside the jurisdiction of that local agency.
(2) Subject to the consistency determinations required pursuant to this title, each member agency with jurisdiction lying within the area of Fort Ord may plan for, zone, and issue or deny building permits and other development approvals within that area. Actions of the member agency pursuant to this paragraph may be reviewed by the board on its own initiative, or may be appealed to the board. Under no circumstances shall development approvals of the following categories be held to be inconsistent with the Fort Ord Reuse Plan:
(i) The construction of one single family house or one multiple family house not exceeding four units on a vacant lot within an area appropriately designated in the plan.
(ii) Improvements to existing single family residences or to existing multiple family residences not exceeding four units, including remodels or room additions.
(iii)Remodels of the interior of any existing building or structure.
(iv) Repair and maintenance activities that do not result in an addition to, or enlargement or expansion of, any building or structure.
(v) Installation, testing, and placement in service or the replacement of any necessary utility connection between an existing service facility and development approved pursuant to this chapter.
(vi) Replacement of any building or structure destroyed by a natural disaster.
(c) The board may require any public or private entity seeking to initiate a revision or other change to a plan adopted pursuant to this section to pay a charge or charges sufficient to cover the reasonable costs of reviewing, evaluating, preparing, adopting, and publishing the proposed revision or change.
