Summit officials announced on Wednesday that residents and workers within the G8 security zone will receive their accreditation in the week of June 21.
The G8 summit takes place at the Deerhurst Resort on June 25, so area residents and businesses will have just five days to pick up their passes. The summit's Integrated Security Unit says information on obtaining accreditation documents will be communicated through local media, the ISU website and emails.
According to Huntsville Mayor Claude Doughty, there are about 200 - 300 people living within the G8 security perimeter, which encircles a wide area around the Deerhurst Resort.
More information about accreditation for Huntsville-area residents and workers can be found on the Integrated Security Unit's website here.
