Local Agenda Items

We have been very fortunate to have Mr. Frank Lombardi, the State Planning Director, agree to talk to us and answer questions about the manner in which state and county plans are compatible. His topic will be "State vs. County Planning". When he was invited he seemed VERY anxious to have the opportunity to "tell us a few things".

He will also bring slides to illustrate the future planning plans for Oahu. It should be very interesting for everyone. We hope that there will be a good turnout as it seems to us that is important to have a good audience when a busy man gives up an evening for our edification. Let's pack the room so he will be glad he came!

In case you want to reserve coffee and doughnuts for yourself, better call 746260 or 774402 and say you'll be there:

Wednesday, March 14, 7:45 p.m.


Frank Lombardi, State Planning Director

We have decided to temporarily postpone our "planning forum" meeting for the present. We will let you know when things have calmed down in local planning circles and we feel the time is right to question the officials involved in our planning.

Is one of our members personally found out in an interview with two members of the Public Works Committee of the Council, the mere mention of "variance" and "spot-zoning" brings forth the same reaction as rubbing salt in an open wound. I can't help but wonder why everyone is so sensitive these days? We will present up-to-the-minute reports on the planning situation at the unit meetings in March.

In the meantime, let's all watch the Council's final action on Bill 168 which would continue indefinitely all previously granted building height variances. We understand that there is a 3 page list of these variance requests. On March 26, a new bill will go into effect which will place further restrictions on these proposed buildings. Must put my arm back in the sling, pick up my crutches and mail this.
