A big Mahalo to everyone that took the time to submit testimony regarding the Ritz-Carlton stairwell light spillage. It was a BIG help.
The Zoning and Planning Committee on June 16, 2016 took serious account of that input.
The Chair, Ikaika Anderson asked what actions the Developer will take. The Developer acknowledged that there was an issue that needed solving.
Anderson secured an explicit commitment from the Developer that “the issue will be addressed”.
The Developer advised that they will be testing different solutions sometime over the next 30 days on Tower 1. Furthermore, the Developer acknowledged that they will work to avoid a similar problem occurring on the Tower 2 stairwell.
The Resolution to approve the Ritz-Carlton PDR received unanimous support and now goes to the full City Council.
In conclusion, we cannot be certain how much of the light spillage issue will be ultimately solved, but we can have some confidence that there WILL now be improvements over the present lighting configuration.
Thanks again to those who provided testimony.
