Navy to Hold Off Until Sept. 3
August 27, 2010
The Joint Guam Program Office on Wednesday announced the Department of Navy will take no action on the Record of Decision for the Guam/CNMI Military Relocation until after Sept. 3.
The notice of availability on the final EIS was published in the Federal Register on July 28, and the Department of Defense originally had planned to issue the Record of Decision shortly after a 30-day waiting period had passed.
But now, comments received on the final EIS will be reviewed and considered as the Record of Decision is developed, according to a statement from JGPO.
The announcement to extend the Record of Decision after Sept. 3 comes as Roger Natsuhara, acting assistant Secretary of the Navy, responded to Guam Delegate Madeleine Bordallo's request for an extension to allow the community time to review the Defense Department document. Bordallo also asked the assistant secretary of the Navy to consider comments received.
"It is important that all of our concerns highlighted in the final EIS, especially those of location for the proposed firing range and the transit carrier berthing location, are appropriately addressed in the Record of Decision," she stated in a press release.
