Guam - Over two dozen Chamorro Land Trust and Ancestral Land properties were turned over to several of Guam's families- some of whom been waiting for nearly 60 years. Governor Eddie Calvo signed off on the deeds and leases this morning.
"We've already deeded over a thousand acres of the original properties owned by the families in Guam that were taken by the federal and the local government, it's now gone back to the original landowners and if it wasn't for the hard work and efforts of our land agencies that would not have happened," he said.
The deed signing returned land in Asan for the family of Vicente Taijito Ropolla and land in Barrigada for the family of Jesus Garrido Lujan. Meanwhile 13 residential leases and 20 agricultural leases were issued by CLTC as well.
