Guam - It's no secret that the military has been seeking property outside the fence to accommodate the increase in population from the relocation of U.S. Marines. The Guam Ancestral Lands Commission will be meeting tomorrow to hear from the Joint Guam Program Office regarding their request to conduct environmental and engineering studies at the former Federal Aviation Administration and Andy South parcels.
ALC Executive Director Ed Benavente says this is the second time the military has requested to survey the land, adding that they must address the military's request to avoid complaints of discrimination. Benavente adds that Guam Economic Development Authority officials will participate as they handle the agency's land inventory.
The meeting is scheduled for 2pm at the Ancestral Lands Commission's conference room in Anigua.
