First Futenma relocation research contract ready

Date Posted: 2006-09-16

A Tokyo company has been awarded a ¥6,000,000 contract to do research and prepare Camp Schwab for its role as the location for a new Marine Corps airfield.

The Japanese Self Defense Agency says the consulting company will conduct a wide range of studies on how and where to place buildings on Camp Schwab, in northern Okinawa, to best establish a master plan for constructing the replacement airfield. A key element of the five-month contract is determining what, if any, cultural artifacts or properties are on Camp Schwab.

Self Defense Agency Director Ko Watabe says “We need to conduct research to get information about buried cultural property” before any work begins. “We don’t know exactly what may be where,” he added, “but after the detail planning, then we will know.”

Nago City’s Board of Education initiated the request for a cultural properties study. City staff will also examine the Camp Schwab sites where new barracks will be constructed, and will also study the location identified for the flight line and runway. One official says the preparation process will cost taxpayers about ¥40,000,000 ($360,000).
