“BUILDUP I” and “BUILDUP-LITE”

    • Originally, GPA had $137 million in projects whose need is either created by the Military Buildup or was moved up by the Military Buildup.
    • GWA had successfully negotiated for $420 million in projects.
    • DOD had agreed to finance and pay for all incremental costs of Buildup
    • Buildup-lite is expected to have less of an impact but we will continue to insist that the buildup pays for its impact so it not burden island residents or resources.
