Guam - Residents showed up to voice their concerns during a town hall meeting last night at the Dededo Citizens Center on proposed plans to construct a new high school up north. JFK High School stakeholders showed obvious reservations about the plans, asking lawmakers why they're considering a new high school, when a new campus isn't even built.

Dededo resident Albert San Agustin says lawmakers also need to think about the accessibility of recreational facilities for the people of the village.  "We want to keep the sports complex as a sports complex. We've had experiences here at the middle school where they're using the facilities. Our village people here want to use the facilities but they have practices in the evening too," he stated.

Dededo mayor Melissa Savares had her own concerns about traffic congestion and safety.

In the meantime, lawmakers are expected to receive testimony on Bill 413 during a formal hearing tomorrow at 9am.
