Mayor Apatang backs MVA’s Paseo improvement project

SAIPAN Mayor David M. Apatang expressed support for the Marianas Visitors Authority’s plan to improve the Paseo de Marianas in Garapan.

“The project is commendable and I appreciate MVA’s action,” he said.

MVA should also improve all the sidewalks in the Garapan tourist district, he added.

On rainy days, many tourists find it difficult to cross the road due to flooded sidewalks, the mayor said.

As for the Paseo de Marianas, he said it should be “beautiful and clean” because it is the central part of Garapan and is seen or frequented every day by tourists.

Apatang said his office will also collaborate with the Commonwealth Ports Authority and the Department of Public Works to fix the dilapidated road in the Saipan airport area.

In addition, his office will continue the road repair effort in the villages, including the Mount Tapochao and Chalan Galiede areas, the mayor said.
