I have a copy of Maui Land & Pine's letter regarding Lipoa Point, Honolua, that says it wants the County Council to remove the zoning designation of preservation so it can build at Lipoa Point.
Why not bring the Japanese back and build a golf course and golf estates in Hana? Then you will lose a significant cultural and historical setting. We will lose a natural treasure, enjoyed by locals and tourists.
That is also what will happen if Lipoa Point loses its preservation zoning.
I also have documents that show the developer's plans for Olowalu. The plans will greatly alter the community that exists there. Cultural and environmental degradation will occur. Large amounts of money are being spent to preserve the reef at Olowalu. Runoff from development will destroy the reef, and another scenic and recreational resource will be lost.
Why not just tear down Happy Valley and Market Street and build new fancy homes and condos? Then there will be no old Hawaii and no historic preservation of architecture and loss of cultural heritage. That is what will happen if you develop Olowalu. Lush vegetation, broad expanses of agricultural lands, giving wide open vistas and small communities where people know one another will be lost.
Why not cross Hawaii off the map and rename it new California? That is what all this development is doing - killing what used to be Hawaii.
