Housing plan involves investing in modern homes near Guam San Jose

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - During this year's State of the Island Address, Governor Eddie Calvo outlined ten goals as part of his achievable agenda for 2014, the first of which was to provide housing for the homeless. In fact, on the day of the address, the governor's housing team put out an invitation for design in providing quality modern homes for the homeless.

"Now, when I say 'modern' homes, I'm not kidding. These structures are earthquake- and typhoon-resistant to standards by the International Building Code. They are homes with kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms. They're also insulated and energy efficient," he said.

The cost? It is estimated between $10,050.

In the next couple of months, a list of developers who can put up these structures will be released. In his weekly address, Calvo says the solutions to battling homelessness will go two directions - the government investing into building these new modern homes near Guma San Jose and offering developers the use of 10 lots at Sagan Linahyan for an open house expected to spur an entirely new housing market on island.
