Guam - After failing to meet for the past two months, the Guam Land Use Commission finally reconvened today. During today's meeting, Land Management director and GLUC executive secretary Monte Mafnas addressed concerns over the board's inability to meet previously due to a lack of quorum. He said the board awaits confirmation from the legislature of vice chairman Larry Rivera, whose term recently expired.

"To those who questioned the validity of today's session, please be advised that he will be ratified when the chairman comes in and we have a full quorum," he said.

The board nominated and approved newly confirmed commissioner John Arroyo as the new vice chairman and acting chairman. And while the board did approve an application for a zone change for a proposed storage facility it did note that the zone change request for a proposed mini-mall complex in Merizo had been withdrawn.
