Unalaska is waiting on a free infrastructure report card, courtesy of the U.S. military. 

 

That report will be compiled by civil affairs officers, including U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii. 

 

Gabbard, a former Democratic presidential candidate, visited the island as part of a team last week in her capacity as an Army Reserve major, for meetings and an assessment of Unalaska's future infrastructure needs.

The U.S. Air Force and Missile Defense Agency plan to spend $68.6 million on modernizing the Cobra Dane Radar site on the Aleutian island of Shemya over the next five years.

The Government Accountability Office released a report in December saying the 43-year-old site “faces growing sustainment challenges.” But the Department of Defense (DOD) will resolve them by replacing and redesigning parts.
