Should there be additional restrictions on development in Kakaako? Why?
It appears there are sufficient regulations in place so long as the standard used is the prevalent community/county standard and rules and processes are applied fairly, transparently and with public input.
What is your one big idea?
Develop in West Maui a pilot sustainable water reuse and storm water diversion plan to support healthy reefs by eliminating injection wells and utilizing reclaimed water in landscaping along roadways, in parks and for other non-potable uses to assist in recharging aquifers and preventing runoff that damages reefs and fisheries.
