The project was approved by the GLUC in late April despite the Yona and Chalan Pago municipal planning councils passing resolutions opposing the development. 

 

Guam – With the recent controversial approval of the Pago Bay condominiums, senator Frank Aguon Jr. has introduced legislation to require a additional approval before the Guam Land Use Commission can approve of any future rezoning applications.

 

 

 

 

 

Bill 318 would require the approval of a municipal planning council before the GLUC can approve any rezoning or variance application. The legislation is in direct response to the Pago Bay Development, however Senator Frank Aguon Jr., on the “Four Hour Free Re-Phill” with Phill Leon-Guerrero show on K57says his bill isn’t about opposing the Pago bay development.

 

“From my perspective, it’s not a question of opposing development, its about making sure the people and the residents of that particular municipality has a say in the process,” said Aguon.

 

The project was approved by the GLUC in late April despite the Yona and Chalan Pago municipal planning councils passing resolutions opposing the development. The Mayors Council also passed a resolution supporting the Yona Municpal Planning Councils decision to oppose the project.
