Guam - The Guam Land Use Commission has received more requests from interested companies seeking approval to construct temporary workers housing around the island. The Commission has already approved plans for Younex and Chugach, while nine other companies still have pending applications. 

Chief planner Carl Untalan says the GLUC has approved facilities with capacities for approximately 22,000 workers, but with pending applications the capacity will grow. "We always track as what is approved and what is projected," explained Untalan. "The projection we're probably looking at adding another 4,000 or 5,000 more and you can put the figures together and we're really looking over 24,000+ - less than 30,000, but greater than 25,000."

The GLUC, during a meeting on Thursday, had intended to approve CoreTech's application to revamp the Royal Hawaiian Apartment Complex into temporary workers housing, but the matter was tabled until the next Commission meeting.
