Everyone: Please read this.
We are having a very important meeting this Wednesday, August 15, at 7pm on the Four Paddle Recreation Deck near the BBQs.
This is extremely important. Please bring a pen and notepad. This meeting is organized by various owners, not the AOAO.
We will discuss how to respond and write individual comments regarding the EA (Environmental Assessment) report. Our individual comments must be mailed in (address provided below) no later than this Saturday, Aug 18th.
Yes, I know this is crunch time, but the developers are running this project through as fast as they can.
Below is a link to the EA report. Please try to review it some ahead of time.
Wait for it to load into your browser, as it is over 500 pages. Most of it is graphics and drawings though.
It’s best to use the table of contents to find areas of interest, and then jump to that area. Make notes as you read, as to which item numbers you wish to respond to.
Remember, the developers are making this seem like everything about this project is just fine and good for the neighborhood and Waikiki, which we all know it’s not. So it’s up to us to pick this apart and point out the issues with traffic capacities, sewer capacities. And pay attention to the sections on views, and adjacent buildings. Remember our objective is a narrower, perpendicular building, not a massive wall that blocks sky and sunlight from mauka and makai.
At the meeting we will discuss and collaborate to help each other and come up with ideas.
Please write your comments ASAP, and mail them no later than Aug 18th (they are due in by Aug 22nd), to BOTH of the addresses below:
