Streets And Vacant Seats Are On April Agenda

Street repairs will be on the agenda when the Kaneohe Neighborhood Board holds its April meeting.

Kulauli Street, which serves a residential neighborhood and an elementary school, is being damaged by heavy trucks working on the new Kaneohe-to-Kailua sewer tunnel. The Neighborhood Board learned at its March meeting that the city likely will speed up its plan to repair the street.

A report on the plan is scheduled when the board meets at 7 p.m., Thursday, April 16, at Benjamin Parker Elementary School, 45-259 Waikalua Road.

Volunteers Are Needed To Fill Empty Board Seats

The Board also has set aside time in the agenda to fill four vacancies. They are in the following areas:
  • Subdistrict 4 -- Kea'ahala
  • Subdistrict 5 -- Lilipuna
  • Subdistrict 6 -- Waikalua
  • Subdistrict 11 -- Pilikoi (behind Castle High School)
The board is authorized for 17 members. In order to take action, the board must have nine votes in favor -- a majority of the authorized membership. Four empty seats are the equivalent of four "no" votes, and make it harder for Kaneohe to have its voice heard by local and state leaders.

Interested in serving? Check out the city's online street index and online map to find out if you live in a subdistrict with an open seat. For more information, contact Neighborhood Board Chairman Mo Radke at, and come to the board meeting.

Those appointed will serve through June 30, 2015.
