Governor’s Office Seeks Public Input on Sustainability

146

Guam – The Office of the Governor invites the public to attend a workshop addressing the Compatibility Sustainability Study (CSS). The primary goal of the Guam CSS is to identify potential conflicts between the community of Guam and the military and to work together to resolve those conflicts while protecting our economy, public health and safety, and current and future military missions.

“The administration has always believed that the buildup must be mutually beneficial. The people of Guam must have a voice in every step of the decision making process, especially in areas that will greatly impact the quality of life of every member of this community,” Governor Eddie Baza Calvo said. “I encourage everyone to take an active role and voice their opinions. We all need to engage in this critical discussion. The future of Guam truly is in our hands.”

The Guam CSS is a collaborative planning effort involving the public, the government of Guam, military services and other affected agencies. This is the third set of workshops concerning the CSS. At this workshop, highlights from the Draft CSS will be provided. The Draft CSS is currently out for public review and comment, and this workshop will give a good understanding of the actions proposed and how you can provide input into the preparation of the final CSS.

The ONE GUAM logo represents the vision of one community work together for Guam’s future. The brand communicates the spirit of collaboration with government, military and the people of Guam.

The public is encouraged to attend to learn more and provide input on the planning effort. The workshops will be held at the following locations:
