PPP partners and community support tourism's reopening with clean-up event



(Updated July 20, 2021)


The Governor’s Council of Economic Advisers (GCEA) is hosting the Marianas Pride Beautification Event every Saturday in July – July 10, 17, 24, and 31 – from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to prepare for the reopening of tourism and as the Commonwealth receives its first familiarization group from Korea. GCEA’s Public Private Partnership partners and volunteer groups from the community will be conducting special clean-ups throughout Rota, Tinian, and Saipan.

The GCEA worked with the Marianas Visitors Authority to identify top sites that need a refresh before tourism reopens. Groups are encouraged to call to adopt a site:


Rota

  • Bird Sanctuary pavilions and park

  • Benita Manglona Buildings

  • Mendiola Park

Tinian

  • House of Taga

  • Tinian Lookout

  • Suicide Cliff

Saipan

  • Garapan core sidewalk curbs

  • Mt. Tapochau railings and latte stones

  • Last Command Post restroom building

  • Banzai Cliff pavilion, restroom, and railings

  • Bird Island railings


All cleaning and painting supplies will be provided. PPP partners and groups can send their supplies and paint requests to Edna Nisola at gceacnmi@gmail.com or by calling (670)788-3357.


Partners and volunteers are encouraged to tag the GCEA in their social media posts or use the #togetherwecanmarianas hashtag to be featured. The GCEA thanks its partners for their continued commitment to improving The Marianas for its residents and visitors.


GCEA also thanks the Department of Public Lands and Crowne Plaza Resort Saipan for making this project possible through the support of their public benefit fund.
