GEDA Says JFK Bond Closing Slated for Friday Now That DOI Has Approved Rebuild


Guam – Guam Economic Development Administrator Tony Blaz is praising the efforts of  the Governor and Congresswoman Bordallo and others in winning approval from the Department of Interior for the construction of a new JFK campus in Upper Tumon.

The property was formerly controlled by DOI and was transferred to GovGuam in 1952 with certain restrictions which required approval for its use. That approval was granted Tuesday in Washington.
