Let’ ammend SB 2783 being heard tomorrow Monday 2/27 at the State Legislature Rm 016 at 10 AM.
How much will it take to clean it up before we can really use it? another $200 million? What’s the Return on our Investment…the ROI. How much more will we have to invest in it to be useable land? Do we know the answer to these questions? Does OHA?
Since everyone’s already pretty much signed on this,how about in addition to Kaka’ako, the Dump, let’s include lands and resources that are historically, politically and culturally important to native Hawaiians. How about for starters:
- ‘Iolani Palace, the artifacts in it, the armory, the grounds around it. It really belongs to the Hawaiian people, not the State of Hawai’i.
- Washington Place, home of Queen Lili’uokalani
- Mauna Kea, also known as Mauna a Wākea, and the home of the goddess of snow Poliahu. The University claims that they don’t really make any money off the observatories anyway and they lease the land under each of them for $1 a year.
- Kilauea, home of the goddess Pele and her fire clan.
- Haleakala…..why not?
Anything else you want to add to the list?
