The governor of Guam and the state historic preservation office are expected to sign the Guam Preservation Trust within days. Their agreement includes protection of island historic sites from the activities of ongoing military training and testing.

The document replaces the expired 2009 Programmatic Agreement. It outlines policies for the Guam Historic Preservation Office and Joint Region Marianas as to how negative impacts on the island’s cultural and historic sites will be avoided or minimized during the Navy’s training and testing activities.

There are a total of 247 historic sites covered under the agreement. Of those, 83 sites are within military training areas and 204 sites are within 300 feet of training sites.
