Kalaeloa Advisory Team (KAT) Updates

A note regarding the Kalaeloa Advisory Team (KAT):
The last KAT meeting was on January 28, 2016. These are developments since then:
1. The Kalaeloa Energy Corridor Project bidding process has been completed and HCDA is currently in the process of executing a contract with Paul’s Electric for the first phase of the project. As soon as the construction schedule is formalized we will request that the contractors provide a briefing for our stakeholder groups.
2. The 2016 legislative capital improvement project appropriation request for $6 million to complete the second phase of the Kalaeloa Energy Project is still making its way through the legislative process. We know that our area leaders are doing their best to secure the funding we need. We are crossing our fingers.
3. On February 26, 2016, the Honolulu Fire Department (HFD) submitted their draft project request to secure a right-of-entry from the HCDA to the City, Department of the Corporation Counsel for their review. The HFD hopes to partner with the HCDA to conduct HFD low-impact training exercises on Parcel 13073-C, Tax Map Key 9-1-013-068, which is an approximately 19-acre vacant parcel located immediately north of the Kalaeloa Heritage Park. Since this request is considered an interim use and there are no plans for any permanent development on the parcel our rules do not require a development permit or public hearing process. The HFD request for interim land use and the details about the type of training will be discussed at our next Authority meeting on Tuesday, April 12, 2016 at 9:30 a.m. at our main office at 547 Queen Street.
