Guam - The design and construction of a long-awaited Guam Museum, as well as flood prevention, lighting and pedestrian safety improvements in Tumon are at the top of the Guam Visitors Bureau's priority list. The Government of Guam has more than $55 million, secured through the sale of Hotel Occupancy Tax bonds, which will go toward various tourism-related projects. 

The board recently passed a resolution detailing the list of priorities that also include preservation projects in Hagatna and scenic sites in Merizo, Umatac, Talofofo, Piti and Agat. The board has also recommended that improvements be made to the Farmers Co-op and Dededo Flea Market, and sports and recreational complexes in Hagatna.
