Looks like no one paid Joanne off. Looks like the rest of em got a fat check from a developer or something.
The extent to which development concerns, along with a robust economic-development plan will always be a “balancing act” for us here, in the Hawaiian Islands—–especially because of our need to maintain the integrity of our environment in the ways we protect and preserve our limited, finite resources. It may well be worth our while to consider apartment dwellings or affordable housing units similar to what our sugar plantations provided decades ago along with community gardens and orchards to supplement our food supply. Or how about an emphasis on agricultural alternatives that promote healthy lifestyles?
The next 20 years? Are your “New Englanders” made any worth while bills? Or shall I say, french bourgiouses. Because they are the crap, and no change. What is the General plan got to do with the work? Politics. In this case, laws of the land.
Yes, the west side need to see a little growth. Like affordable housing for our young families, a nice shopping mall, and an activity center with an Olympic size swimming pool. Also, alternative streets and roads to get around in the area.
Please keep the future plan reasonable and no hotels.
If Yukimura has a problem with it then that’s a stamp of approval for me. When is the woman, only supported by blind of Japanese former plantation workers, going to retire and go away. Wordiness is NOT a virtue. Passé and obsolete. II remember how she protested against jobs at Nukoli’i. Hippies are not know for their intelligence. Even ones with law degrees.
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO SET ASIDE FINANCING TO INCREASE THE HIGHWAY CAPACITY. IT APPEARS THAT MOST POLITICIANS HAVE THEIR OWN AGENDAS TO INTRODUCE, BUT NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT MAKING OUR HIGHWAYS SAFER. EVERY ISLAND, EXCEPT KAUAI, HAVE IMPROVED THEIR HIGHWAYS. THE ROAD FROM KEALIA TO WAIMEA SHOULD BE A FOUR LANE DIVIDED HIGHWAY. WE HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY AND THE FUNDS CAN BE BORROWED USING BONDS. LET’S GET THIS PROJECT STARTED. THE WAY IT IS NOW IS AN ABSOLUTE JOKE. COME ON YOU GUYS, GET TO WORK ON THE REAL ISSUE, NOT YOUR PET PROJECT.
I LOVE MY ISLAND AND WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT IMPROVED. GO KAPAA HIGH.
