SAIPAN – The U.S. Air Force will host a two-day "interpretive planning" workshop on the divert activities and exercises project areas on Tinian, according to the Commonwealth Bureau of Military Affairs.

Special assistant for military affairs Glenna Reyes said the workshop involves activities and brainstorming sessions for two full days, Aug. 26-27 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Latte Stone Room of the Kanoa Resort.

George Herbst, cultural resources/environmental inspection lead of the Pacific Air Force, and Elizabeth Leclerc, archaeologist from HDR Inc., will conduct the workshop.

On Aug. 28, they will travel to Tinian to meet with Mayor Edwin Aldan, the legislative delegation chairman, Senate Vice President Jude Hofschneider and other members of the island leadership to review the results of the two-day workshop, and to get additional input from island leaders and relevant agencies that were not able to attend the workshop on Saipan.
