Guam - Meetings on the controversial Programmatic Agreement will be held later this week as Deputy Secretary of the Navy on Environment Don Schregardus and Advisory Council to Historic Preservation's Carol Hall will be on island.  The two will be conducting a public meeting at Okkodo High School on Thursday. 

On Friday they are set to meet with several indigenous rights groups including Fuetsan Famalao'an and the Chamorro Tribe.  Guam State Historic Preservation Officer Lynda Aguon spoke on the importance of public participation, saying, "I just believe that here is the opportunity everyone who is concerned with historic properties the adverse effect this undertaking will have on these historic properties should come and stake their opinions and comments and it will be noted by the Department of Defense."

The public meeting on the Programmatic Agreement will be held on Thursday from 5-9pm at Okkodo High School.  You can view the Draft PA at HistoricGuam.org.
