Mosquito-Borne Viruses, Sustainability Plan On Agenda For Kaneohe Neighborhood Board Meeting

Among the scheduled topics are:
A presentation by Dr. David Johnston of the state Department of Health about dengue fever and the Zika virus. The Department says there have been recent outbreaks of both diseases in the state, but that no locally transmitted cases are present at this time. However, the mosquitos that transmit the viruses are present here and could pick it up from infected travelers. The Department’s Fight the bite program urges residents to protect themselves against mosquitos and eliminate areas where mosquitos can breed.
A presentation by Raymond Young of the Honolulu Department of Planning and Permitting about the Koolaupoko Sustainable Communities Plan. A proposed change to the plan would allow expansion of the cemetery at Hawaiian Memorial Park. The Department of Planning and Permitting supports the change. The group SaveKaneohe.Org has asked the Board to oppose the expansion.
An opportunity to fill the three vacant seats on the Board. The seats represent Sub-District 8, Kapunahala; Sub-District 9, Keapuka; 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).

The Board also will discuss establishing a Public Interaction Group, filling the Board Treasurer’s position, filling committee vacancies, tables for the Windward Hoolaulea, and a banner to promote Board meetings.
