GHURA working on Guma Trankilidat plans

by Nick Delgado

Guam - It seems the plans to add more units to Guma Trankilidat is one of the top priorities for newly appointed Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority director Marcel Camacho. He says he met with residents last Tuesday and heard their concerns about the management of the facility and how it should be improved.

He says the discussion was about future plans for the housing area and ways they can be efficient. Camacho says he is looking to add units but wants to ensure it is not a burden on the community, adding, "We have this plan now to break the project away from the central system here at GHURA and create an asset management project and what that means is we'll have a manager down there, we'll have people to maintain the property and be more responsive to the community."

Residents have made their argument that they would not be comfortable with living in a high-rise facility, as originally proposed. Camacho now says that the plans would only be for a three-to-five story building. He says the plans are expected to be completes in the next six months.
