Noisy Animals Stressing Residential Area; Kaneohe Neighborhood Board Will Try To Help

Among the scheduled topics are:

Discussion of a resolution to help neighbors deal with disruptions and health risks from farm animals in the Puohala neighborhood. Residents told the Board’s agenda planning meeting on June 7 that one of their neighbors illegally raises peacocks, chickens, pigs, fighting dogs and other animals. The neighbors say that they are working on the issue with Honolulu police but that many other government agencies have declined to help them.

Discussion of a letter to the Honolulu Neighborhood Commission about a proposed amendment to the Neighborhood Plan.  The amendment, to section 2-17-202, would clarify who is an “active voter” for determining eligibility to vote in elections for neighborhood board positions.  

Discussion of a letter to the city Department of Planning and Permitting seeking an extension for considering updates to the Koolaupoko Sustainable Communities Plan. The Board has appointed a study group to examine parts of the plan. The city has scheduled a final public hearing on the document at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 6, at Pali Golf Course, 45-050 Kamehameha Hwy.

Action on representation of two Board sub-districts. The Board will vote on reappointing Nancy Davlantes to the seat for Sub-District 9, Keapuka. And the Board will vote on issuing a three-absence letter to member Gloria Carlile. She represents Sub-District 11, Mokulele.

Two other seats are currently open on the Board. They represent Sub-District 8, Kapunahala; and Sub-District 12, Pikoiloa. The Board is authorized to fill vacancies by appointment. Community members may indicate their interest by contacting Board Chairman Mo Radke or by attending a Board meeting. A map of the district is available online, as is a street index that is organized by sub-district (search for District 30 in the index, then find the sub-district).
