Historic Preservation Trust to comment on ROD

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The National Trust for Historic Preservation is still formalizing their response to the Record of Decision released earlier this week.  Just last week Assistant Secretary of the Navy Jackalyne Pfannenstiel responded to the NTHP's July 2 letter expressing concerns about the impacts of the Marines' plans for a firing and training ranges along Route 15 near Pagat. 

The Trust sought additional studies and said the Final Environmental Impact Statement was "legally inadequate" in its consideration of alternative sites for the ranges.  In her response, Pfannenstiel said the Department of Defense acknowledges the historical and cultural importance of Pagat and expressed confidence that the ranges would be operated in such a way that would have no direct impacts to public access and the complex, if chosen. 

Pfannenstiel added that the Route 15 area were determined to be the only two alternatives. The assistant secretary of the Navy said the DoD is currently engaged in discussions to address the effects of the proposed military relocation on historical properties in Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
