Demolition Permit For Old JFK Building Waits For Approval


Guam -The Demolition permit for the old JFK High building in Upper Tumon still needs to be reviewed and approved be work can begin.

The old structure is one step closer of being knocked down after financing on the new JFK High School project closed in San Francisco overnight. The Guam Economic Development Authority states that GovGuam successfully closed on the financing at 2 am Guam time Friday morning and the funds are now in hand to allow the project to begin.

But according to DPW Deputy Director Jesse Garcia, International Bridge Corporation can’t start the actual demolition until their permit is approved. He says right now the only activity that is occuring on the old campus is DOE and IBC workers removing debris from the site before demolition can begin.

Garcia also points out that the construction of the new campus can not start until IBC’s construction permit is reviewed and approved. Once that happens the construction will begin.
