Not amused by what’s being planned at Koele

I went to a planning commission meeting on Lanai this past Wednesday to see what the owner was going to do to Koele. What I heard and saw is beyond believable. They are going to turn one of the places like Koele into a total disaster. Larry Ellison and their managers have no idea how special Koele is. They are planning a zipline and other amusements.

We have been waiting for affordable housing ever since Manele was built. How long does it take the county to give us (the Lanai community) what we need? And building homes at the old power house is not acceptable. Is there anybody out there working for us?
