Guam - The new Farmers Co-Op facility will finally break ground early next month. According to GEDA's Real Property Division manager Larry Toves, the new facility will also take into account the relocation of the Dededo Flea Market and will cover close to 12,000 square feet which includes parking and 180 vendor stalls.

He says the designer is also working to address issues regarding the public water system to handle the Guam Fire Department's requirements for fire flow.

"We've come up with a solution to address the fire flow issue, so we have our designer putting together a design for that - the good news is it's a lower projected costs than we anticipate, so we're going to be constructing system to address fire flow here," he said.

Mega united corporation is the contractor for the project with architects Laguana as the designer. The $3 million project is expected to be complete by March 2015. The Farmers Co-Op will be located at the corner of Marine Corps Drive and Santa Monica Boulevard facing Route 1 in Dededo.
