THE Marianas Visitors Authority board has approved an appropriation of $35,000 to fund the installation of interpretive signs in Garapan.
MVA Managing Director Chris Concepcion said they have partnered with the Northern Marianas Humanities Council to install 40 interpretive signs in Garapan.
“Lots of our tourist sites are historical in nature,” MVA board member Chris Nelson said.
For his part, MVA board vice chair Vincent Calvo said all tourist and historical sites on Rota, Tinian and Saipan should have interpretive signs.
Nelson said the interpretive-sign project will include other islands, including Pagan, adding that the signs will be in English, Chinese, Korean and Japanese.
MVA board chair Marian Aldan-Pierce said they should set a timeline to implement the project which, she added, should be completed within a year.
