Please NOTE: 3/16 meeting is the Citizen Advisory Committee – public testimony is always welcome there, but the CAC is advisory only and in addition several CAC members represent the leeward side. 

For leeward constituents, it is suggested to submit written comments as soon as possible during this current comment process so that they can share public comment on leeward issues with their Technical Advisory Committee, which includes the implementing agencies. 

For public testimony, the Policy Board is the best venue, as this is our actual decision making body. However, having comments in hand before will give them more time to consider them. Thus, please submit via email with Attention to: Amy Ford-Wagner <Amy.Ford-Wagner@oahumpo.org> and note that it is for the 3/16 meeting.
