Guam - The concepts discussed during today's UOG Sustainability Conference are ideas we just might find on the soon to be constructed new Marine Corps base in Dededo. Colonel Robert Lloyd is the officer in charge of Marine Forces Pacific for Guam and the CNMI, and says, "Issues of sustainability, environmental conservation, walk ability, coordination and cooperation with local community are all very important principles and I think it s a very exciting time. For all of us as we move forward."

According to the colonel, there will be a noticeable incorporation of the culture in the future marine base in Guam. "I think in the cooperation with the local community of Dededo. We'll see a lot of cross-polinization, but I know installation appearance is very big to us in terms of how we incorporate aspects of the local culture local history into the design and construction of our base are very important principles."

Colonel Loynd says the base in Guam which be completely different than the base in Okinawa in that it will apply the walk to where you work principles and a live-where-you-work concept.
