Section V—Modification Only By Vote of the People

No provision of the Initiative shall be changed, amended, or
repealed except by a vote of the People of the Fort Ord Reuse
Authority District.

Section VI—Effective Date; Application.

The Initiative shall be deemed adopted upon the date the vote
is declared by the FORA Board, and shall go into effect
10 days after that date, pursuant to Elections Code
Section 9320. The Initiative shall apply to actions by FORA
and all its constituent public agencies taken on or after the

Section VII—Severability

The Initiative shall be broadly construed in order to achieve the
purposes stated in the Initiative. If any section, sub-section,
sentence, clause, phrase, part, or portion of the Initiative is
held to be invalid or unconstitutional by a final judgment of a
court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect
the validity of the remaining portions of the Initiative. The
People of the Fort Ord Reuse Authority District hereby declare
that the Initiative, and each section, sub-section, sentence,
clause, phrase, part, or portion thereof would have been
adopted or passed even if one or more sections, sub-sections,
sentences, clauses, phrases, parts, or portions are declared
invalid or unconstitutional. If any provision of the Initiative is
held invalid as applied to any person or circumstance, such
invalidity shall not affect any application of the Initiative that
can be given effect without the invalid application.

In the event that this measure and another measure or
measures relating to the same or similar subject matter shall
appear on the same election ballot, the other measure or
measures shall be deemed in conflict with this measure. In the
event that this measure shall receive a greater number of
affirmative votes, the provisions of this measure shall prevail in
their entirety, and the provisions of the other measure or
measures in their entirety shall be void and of no legal effect.

Other than as specifically set forth in this measure and in the
full text of Sections 3 and 4 of the Reuse Plan, which is
appended to this measure and shows removed language of the
Reuse Plan stricken-through and the added language
underlined, the Initiative shall not change the other provisions
of the Reuse Plan, which shall remain in full force and of legal
effect.
