Guam - Renovations are finally set to begin at Guam Housing and Urban Renewal's Guma Trankilidat housing division in Tumon. It was in October of last year when a capital needs assessment was conducted evaluating the condition of the 49-unit complex.

Director Michael Duenas said, "We are also looking at fencing, security fencing, repair of street lights and walkway lights that have been damaged over the years to enhance the safety of the residents there."

Based on the assessment, GHURA awarded over $98,000 to Pacific-Green Integrated Technology to perform facility modification to mitigate health and safety concerns. As we reported, residents were concerned over pest infestation, security and the overall condition of the housing complex. According to Duenas the renovations are anticipated to be completed within four months.
