Ribbon cut for Ukudu Workforce Village

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held this morning for the Ukudu Workforce Housing and Training Village. The compound accommodates up to 18,000 individuals, providing housing facilities, food services, transportation, recreation activities, security and medical services for temporary resident workers.  

The facility will also have a medical clinic capable of providing primary and urgent care services suitable to not only the entire tenant workforce but will be open to the general public. Several dignitaries, government agencies and businesses were in attendance including Governor Eddie Calvo, who says he is glad the workforce housing will incorporate job training for both local workers and those from the neighboring Micronesia area.

He said, "I think this facility is not only good for  the construction industry, but it is going to have purposes good for the community and the medical facility here will also be used by the public. And I think that afterwards, this facility could be used for other purposes in this community."

The site is comprised of a total of 252 acres.
