PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific reminded today that the public comment period deadline is Oct. 7 for two separate Programmatic Agreement (PA) memos associated with proposed projects at Naval Base Guam, Telecommunications Site (NBGTS) and Andersen Air Force Base (AAFB) for the Marine Corps relocation to Guam.

Comments are being accepted for the Department of Defense’s (DoD) identification and evaluation of historic properties and its determination of effect for J001B: Finegayan Utilities and Site Improvements Phase 1 (PA Memo #1).  J-001B proposes the first phase of required utilities and site improvements at NBGTS, should NBGTS be the selected alternative for construction of a cantonment area to support the Guam and Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) Military Relocation.

Additionally, comments are being accepted for the Department of Defense’s (DoD) plan for resolution of adverse effect for P-240:  MWSS Elec Comm & Flightline Armory (PA Memo#2).  P-240 proposes construction of a single story building which will primarily function as a Marine Wing Support Squadron (MWSS) Electronic and Communication Shop and Flightline Armory.  The project also includes the construction of equipment wash racks and associated site preparation work within the North Ramp area of AAFB.

The comment period for both projects began Aug. 22 and will remain open through Oct. 7 (ChST).  Information regarding the proposed projects is available to the public for a 45-day public comment period.

The information can be found on the NAVFAC Pacific Cultural Information (CRI) website at http://go.usa.gov/kZWG. (Please note the URL is case sensitive).  Comments may be submitted via email to criwebcomment@navy.mil.
