SMA Minor Construction

New BMPs as designed in the SMA Minor permit were put in place before any sitework commenced. The construction of the SMA Minor is nearing completion. We are awaiting a final inspection from HECO and DPP to close out the permit and remove all BMPs. Signs have been posted directing pedestrians to use the crosswalk at Pupukea Road. Hanapohaku submitted a fence permit for the remaining portion along Pahoe Road on May 19th. The permit was issued on July 7th. In accordance with the settlement agreement, construction began in August and was completed on August 19th. Landscaping around this new portion of fence is underway.

Tenant Compliance

All trucks completed their required two moves in August. Single-use plastics, plastic straws, and non-reef-safe sunscreen continue to be prohibited for all tenants. Tour buses continue to be prohibited from the site. All tenants have been notified to remind customers to use the crosswalk at Pupukea Road when crossing Kamehameha Highway. Any signs within 30 feet of the highway have been removed.

Baseline Inspection Report and Compliance

Inspectors from DPP visited the property unannounced in February, and conducted a baseline inspection of the entire property. Hanapohaku and others received the report on February 23rd. Hanapohaku has since reviewed the report including the photos and required changes described in it. All tents required to be removed were immediately taken down. The signs included in the report have all been removed. The electrical violations have been addressed and are awaiting a final inspection at the completion of the SMA minor construction.

Good afternoon, Can you please put your green erosion control fiber rolls on the inside of all your property lines so they are off public and private property. The idea of the rolls as I'm sure you are aware is to keep the slit or erosion contained on the property and not after is has already left it. It would also help the local community not have to look at it as it's quite unsightly for the area as I'm sure you would agree. One other thing on your timeline. It's off, as it does not include the two year extension that was recently granted and I'm sure the public would want to understand that. Thanks


Hi John - We have shifted the filter socks to align with the outside of the planter boxes/fence along Pahoe Road. Our property line is well outside of this but we are happy to accommodate the request. Your comment about the timeline is received. Information about the permit extension was included in the June monthly update.
