186

Piti, Guam, December 19, 2013: In accordance with the requirements of 5 GCA §1205, the Bureau of Statistics and Plans, in conjunction with the Port Authority of Guam (PAG), will be conducting a public hearing on the Jose D. Leon Guerrero Commercial Port of Guam Master Plan Update 2013 Report on Monday, December 23, at the PAG Training Room (former Horizon Office) from 4:00 pm- 5:00 pm.

Numerous changes have occurred since the Port Authority of Guam (PAG) commissioned an update of its Master Plan for the Jose D. Leon Guerrero Commercial Port of Guam (“Port”) in 2007. The intent of this document is to update the content, status, and direction of the Port Modernization Program (PMP) initiated by the Master Plan Update 2007 Report. In doing this, the re-directed PMP and implementation strategy attempt to:

* Modernize the Port in the next five years
* Prepare for a downsized and delayed military build-up
* Provide a balanced focus on improvement and long-term sustainability
* Provide a strategy to secure financial self-sufficiency

The public is invited to attend and provide comment on the Master Plan Update 2013, which is also available for public review on the Port’s website, www.portguam.com under “Port News”.

Hard copies are available for review at the Bureau of Statistics and Plans’ Guam Coastal Management Program Office at 414 Soledad Avenue, GCIC Building, Suite 303, Hagatna and at the Port’s Strategic Planning Division, 1026 Cabras Highway, Suite 203, Piti. Oral or written testimonies will be accepted at the hearing or may be submitted online to terry.perez@bsp.guam.gov

Please include your name when submitting testimonies online.  

Deadline to submit comments is January 10, 2014, 5:00 p.m.
