Anoi Road Water System Improvement Project: Bryan Gallagher and Sean Shigenaga of the Honolulu Board of Water Supply are scheduled to give a presentation of the upcoming work. The project will replace more than a mile of pipe that was laid from the 1930s to 1950s. It will involve daytime lane closures on roads including the Kamehameha Highway.
Ahuimanu Wastewater Pretreatment Facility Improvements: James Nearman of the City and County of Honolulu is scheduled to give an update on this project. It is part of the Kaneohe-Kailua Wastewater Conveyance and Treatment Facilities Project, which is designed to reduce sewage pollution in Kaneohe Bay. A map of the Ahuimanu facility is available by clicking on this link and scrolling to Page 4.
Board Resolution: Our vice-chairman, Bill Sager, is scheduled to introduce a resolution about the He‘eia National Estuarine Research Reserve for consideration and decision-making. The new reserve will encompass 1,385 acres of Kaneohe Bay. The Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology will manage the reserve.
Windward Dog Park Hui: Janine Tully and Emily Vegara are scheduled to present information about establishing a fenced area as an off-leash dog park on the Windward side. Mr. Sager is scheduled to present a resolution about the issue for consideration and discussion.
Pua Alowalo Street Resolution: Board member Deborah Collins is scheduled to present the resolution for discussion. 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.
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.
