Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Meeting – 5/18/16 7pm

Senator Shimabukuro received the following notice from Cynthia Rezentes:

On Wednesday, May 18, 2016, the Federal Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), under the Department of the Interior, will be at Ka Waihona O Ka Naau`ao Dining Hall to hold an informational briefing. The meeting will be from 7:00-8:30 p.m.

The purpose of the briefing is to provide information on the Federal leasing process for offshore renewable energy projects. Currently, there are three locations of interest from two enterprises to establish utility scale windfarms on floating platforms. The map of the approximate locations are attached and include locations off of Ka`ena Point, Barber’s Point, Waikiki.

The briefing is open to the public and will explain what the process is and when the public can participate as the process progresses over the next few years. Please pass the word along to other fishermen, and cultural and traditional practitioners. This is our chance to ask the questions and share some initial concerns about these projects and get educated on how we can participate in the process.
