Guam - With the plans to build the new Guam Museum in Hagatna along with the transfer of funds to the Guam Historical Preservation Trust for renovation of the Old Guam Legislature Building, Governor Eddie Calvo continued his initiative of upgrading and renovating our capital city by signing a contract worth $1.3 million from the HOT bond proceeds to repair and renovate the Plaza De Espana, which has been deteriorating over the years.

Guam program director R.W. Armstrong says the project will be done in two phases and will start in the next couple of weeks. "The design portion of the design build contract will be ongoing and once the drawings are done in about 45 days they will submit for building permits and then the work will follow along after the building permits are received. It should be completed next year and we want to get started and restore the walls to the way it looked before so it's a god project," he said.

GEDA's deputy administrator Tina Garcia says GEDA is looking forward to getting these projects out.
