Deadline to submit PA comments looms

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo is meeting with several defense officials in Washington, DC, with one of the discussions will likely focus on the Programmatic Agreement, which remains unsigned. Comments are due tomorrow on the latest draft version. The newest version puts several concessions in writing as requested by the governor and agreed to by Assistant Secretary of the Navy Robert Work when he visited Guam earlier this year.

Those included shrinking the federal footprint by the end of the buildup, leaving Pagat Village and caves untouched, using a "One Guam" approach in improving infrastructure and employing a "Green Guam" approach to bolster island sustainability and protect natural resources. 

Governor's Chief Policy Advisor Arthur Clark and Guam State Historic Preservation Officer Lynda Aguon have been reviewing the latest PA. Clark is in the nation's capitol with Governor Calvo.
