DOD on the clock to submit buildup master plan

Guam - The Department of Defense has until this week to provide its master plan to Congress for the marine relocation from Okinawa to Guam. Committee Chair on the Buildup Senator Judi Guthertz says she is pleased with the report submitted by Governor Eddie Calvo to the Department of the Interior earlier this year detailing the needs for those living outside the fence.

However, Guthertz expresses disappointment that the feds did not consider the recommendation to work with the local leaders on their version of the master plan. "But DOD to my knowledge did not really work with the civilian community in any way in developing their proposed master plan for the buildup so that is a concern to me, if its something like the EIS draft or final and record of decision, if it takes the ROD as the basis of the master plan then we do know there's some problems," she said.

While there's no word on the status of the master plan from DOI and DOD, Guthertz says once the plans are submitted then there will be a much clearer picture of how the buildup will proceed.
