Please support this effort for Kulani Pu’uhonua.  Mahalo.


Dear Friends,

Please send in your comments on the Draft Environmental Assessment on Kulani by February 7, 2013 to Mr. Chester Koga, AICP, R.M. Towill Corporation, 2024 North King Street, Suite 200, Honolulu, HI 96819.

You can write anything.  However, we ask you to support the position of Ohana Ho`opakele in asking that Kulani become, not a prison, but a Hawaiians Only Pu`uhonua!
Enclosed is our 8-page statement submitted at the hearing on January 22, 2012 at 4 pm in the Aupuni Conference Room in Hilo.  We want to see if they will change the Draft Environmental Assessment by the next hearing on January 31, 2013 at 5 pm at the Keaau Community Center.  If they make no changes, there is no good faith on the part of the Department of Public Safety.
If you can attend, please do and come with written statements!  (They are only allowing 2 minutes “for questions”)
If they make no changes as requested to the Final Environmental Assessment, Ohana Ho`opakele will request an EIS (Environmental Impact Statement), a stricter study be done.  If they refuse, or do not include the changes into the EIS, Ohana Ho`opakele will ask for a “Contested Case Hearing” to he held.
For all of this to happen, we need your support!
