Pump Stations, Research Reserve, Traffic Risks Are On Kaneohe Neighborhood Board Agenda

The agenda is set for our meeting on Thursday, February 16, and we hope you will join us. Details are below. To review the complete agenda online, click on this link.

Pump Stations Upgrade: Representatives of the engineering firm Okahara and Associates Inc. are scheduled to provide information about plans to upgrade wastewater pump stations in the Kahanahou and Walkalua Road areas. A map showing the location of both stations is available by clicking on this link.

He‘eia National Estuarine Research Reserve: A representative of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology is scheduled to brief us on plans for the new reserve. It will encompass 1,385 acres in Kaneohe Bay, including the He’eia Fishpond, forests, grasslands, reefs and Coconut Island. The institute will manage the reserve.

Board Resolution: Our vice-chairman, Bill Sager, will introduce a resolution about the He’eia National Estuarine Research Reserve for consideration and decision-making.

Speeding On Pua Alowalo St.: Board member Deborah Collins is scheduled to lead a discussion of residents’ concerns about dangerous traffic. Residents say speeding drivers threaten pedestrians and crash on the road. They believe drivers are using the road as a thrill ride and shortcut from Windward City Shopping Center back to Kamehameha Highway. Police have monitored the street, and city officials have concluded that there is no need for additional safety measures.

Other Business: Our agenda always includes time for reports from the Fire and Police Departments, Marine Corps Base Hawaii, elected officials from the state and local levels, community organizations, and our Board committees.

Details: The Board meeting will take place in the cafeteria of Benjamin Parker Elementary School, 45-259 Waikalua Road, starting at 7 p.m.
