The Historic Resources Division at the Department of Parks & Recreation has a lot on its plate, with more projects in place for the upcoming military buildup. According to historic preservation officer Patrick Lujan, that agency's board of directors will meet this Friday to discuss the evolution of the office in the last year and what it holds in the next couple of years.

Said Lujan, "There's a lot of activity going on in the next year or two. The archeological community and our office, the University of Guam, the relationship with the military and the military buildup and all the activities they are going through. With the Historic Preservation Office being in the permitting process, it's been very busy here."

In addition, the board will receive a status report on the Okura Hotel excavations and the formation of a new internship program with UOG beginning in January.
