The county or a city may elect to meet the board's refusal of certification in a manner other than as suggested by the board and may then resubmit its revised general plan to the board. If the county or a city requests that the board not recommend or suggest modifications which if made will result in certification, the board shall refuse certification with the required findings. (c) The board shall approve and certify the portions of a general plan or amended general plan applicable to the territory of Fort Ord, or any amendments thereto, if the board finds that the portions of the general plan or amended general plan applicable to the territory of Fort Ord meets the requirements of this title, and is consistent with the Fort Ord Reuse Plan.


67675.4. (a) Within 30 days after the certification of a general plan or amended general plan, or any portion thereof, the board shall, after consultation with the county or a city, establish a date for that county or city to submit the zoning ordinances, zoning district maps, and, where necessary, other implementing actions applicable to the territory of Fort Ord.

(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.
