The Czech government earmarked 1.25 billion crowns (66.7 million U.S. dollars) to compensate the Brdy region for a planned U.S. radar site, the commission in charge said Monday.
Some 600 million crowns will go to municipalities in the area around Rokycany, 400 million to those around Pribram and 250 million to road construction and repair, commission head Ivan Fuksa said.
He said the investment concerns basic infrastructure and the environment, especially sewage and water systems, public lighting, pavements, roads and schools.
The cabinet promised to offer the money even if no radar base was constructed in Misov, some 70 km southwest of Prague.
The Czech Republic is in talks with the United States on the missile defense plan. Washington expects that Prague will make its final decision next year.
A recent opinion poll showed that most Czechs oppose the establishment of the base.
Washington initiated the plan to deploy an anti-missile radar base in the Czech Republic and a missile interceptor base in Poland earlier this year. Moscow said the deployment was aimed against Russia, rather than Iran as Washington had claimed.
