(Adelup)--Governor Felix P. Camacho invites the public to attend a workshop, the first of a series of four, to kick-off the development of the Guam Compatibility Sustainability Study.

“As we move forward in ‘Shaping the Future Together,’ this is your opportunity to provide direction in the development of our road map for our children and future generations,” said Camacho. “Your participation at the public workshop is critical to ensuring the development of this study is responsive to the needs of those involved.”

The public workshop has two main objectives. The first is to educate and inform the public about the Guam CSS with a discussion of the goals of the program and how the public can be involved in its development. The second objective is to obtain public input on the issues and opportunities related to community and military compatibility factors in Guam.

The primary goal of the Guam CSS is to reduce potential conflicts between the community of Guam and military installations and training areas while at the same time sustaining economic development, protecting public health and safety, and protecting current and future military missions.

Funded by the Department of Defense, Office of Economic Adjustment, the Guam CSS is a collaborative planning effort involving the public, the government of Guam, military services, and other affected agencies.

All interested parties are encouraged to attend the public workshops to learn more and provide input on the Guam CSS planning effort.

To provide easy access for interested attendees, the workshop will be held at the following locations:

• 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 27, at the Tamuning Community Center (120 Tun Jesus Crisostomo Street)
• 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 28, at the Dededo Community Center (335 Iglesia Circle)
• 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 29, at the Agat Community Center (Route 2)
