Waianae and Hunting Community Meeting 11 Dec. 2017 at 7PM

Good morning,

There will be a meeting in Waianae next week Monday, December 11 at 7:00 pm. The meeting will be held at the Waianae District Park, same place as the Waianae Neighborhood Meeting. Ken Koike was gracious enough to put this together for us quickly. Please come and spread the word about this meeting as I will be there to meet with whoever wants to voice their concerns over the project. I understand that Ken did mention this meeting at the last Waianae Neighborhood Meeting. We still plan to hold the other meeting on January 11, but I would like to take advantage of Ken’s offer to meet with the Waianae and Hunting community sooner. I am not sure if the Board of Water Supply will be able to make it to this meeting on such a short notice but I will notify them and encourage their participation.

If you could email me a list of concerns that would be appreciated. That would give us some time to get you as much of the answers as possible for the meeting. I understand that some of the concerns relate to actions and projects that are not under DLNR, i.e. the aerial rat poison distribution in Schofield.
