Guam - UOG Chief Planning Officer David Okada says the University now faces some "hard decisions" following Tuesday evening's public hearing on UOG's plans to put 2 wind turbines at Dean's Circle.
The plan has drawn fire from some residents in the area.
Okada did say that the Center for Island Sustainability still anticipates bringing the proposal before the Guam Land Use Commission meeting on August 9th. But, he said the plan could change, for example, even though UOG has already purchased the 2 wind mills, the University could exchange them for different types that might be more acceptable to residents.

“As far as the next steps go, the leadership still has to have an opportunity to meet to discuss and then make some hard decisions based on what the current plan is to what it may look like shortly” said Okada. “What we did do with the residents is to ensure them that whatever that decision is, we will keep them informed of that process.”
Okada also says upon his return, UOG President Dr. Robert Underwood wants neighboring residents and stakeholders to experience first hand what it's like to be around a 1 kilowatt wind turbine generator at a Yigo farm to better understand what's at stake.
He adds UOG will continue to remain transparent and inform everyone about the progress of this project.
