In accordance with the Programmatic Agreement (PA), the public has an opportunity to provide comments on the identification and evaluation of historic properties that may be affected during Guam military build-up construction. The Navy has posted its assessment of impacts to historic properties associated with construction of the North Ramp parking and utilities projects on NAVFAC Pacific’s Cultural Resources Information (CRI) website at
www.bit.ly/NAVFAC-GuamPA. Public comments on the assessment of these projects will be accepted through May 14, 2011.
“Our team has been working diligently to award these projects, which allow us to continue moving forward on the Guam military build-up effort,” said Capt. Peter Lynch, commanding officer of NAVFAC Marianas. “The PA facilitates a smooth process that protects historic properties on Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands (CNMI) and allows design work to proceed simultaneously. Construction will not begin until we have completed the processes outlined in the PA.”
