Guam - Guam EPA is encouraging all mayors, real estate professionals, environmental companies and the public to attend a meeting about the Green Parcels program. The project is funded with money from the National Brownfields Program.  According to Guam EPA administrator Eric Palacios "the idea behind green parcels is to take a closer look at properties that are not being used to their full potential and figure out what it would take to reuse them in a way to benefit the community".

"We want the community buy-in even to start to identify community eyes sores in their minds that we could eventually start funding the cleanup of," he explained.

Whether it is green space or old buildings this program helps encourage the development of properties that may be sitting idle for various reasons. With Green Parcels, Guam EPA can help smooth the way for sites to be reused or redeveloped." The meeting will be held next Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Hilton.
