GLUC denies plans for mall in Yigo

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The Guam Land Use Commission met today and denied a proposal by Guam Pinnacle Corp to build a commercial center in Yigo - a plan protested by many in the island's northernmost village.  The board tabled another proposal by an Alaska-based construction company to turn the old Mai'ana Hotel on Airport Road into a housing facility for nearly 700 workers during the military buildup.

Jay Lather, chairman of the GLUC, spoke candidly about the project, saying, "They want to build a facility for workers there and they have come in with a plan to improve it - very appropriately put up landscaping and really do a nice project so it really makes a lot of sense for the area to do a good improvement of the project."

Department of Land Management director Chris Duenas says the proposal was tabled because the board wants more concrete information on bus access to the site from Airport Road. He says they will take up the matter again at the Land Use Commission's next meeting, tentatively scheduled for mid- to late-November.
