Guam, CNMI will have to wait for ROD

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - It seems residents in Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands will have to wait at least a week and a half before they can review the Record of Decision for the military buildup. The Joint Guam Program Office has announced that the delay is necessary to ensure that all comments received on the Final Environmental Impact Statement are fully considered.

JGPO states that the consultation process under the National Historic Preservation Act and Endangered Species Act are still ongoing. The ROD will detail the relocation plans for U.S. Marines from Okinawa to Guam, the establishment of an army air missile defense task force, and the construction of a new deep draft wharf to support a transient nuclear powered aircraft carrier.

The ROD is now anticipated to be released on September 20.
