The electrical permit was closed on June 21, 2023 and the overall permit closed on June 30, 2023 after a final inspection by DPP and HECO. Signs were posted facing both inside and outside the property directing pedestrians to use the crosswalk at Pupukea Road. The Pahoe Road fence was completed on August 19th, 2021.

Tenant Compliance

All trucks completed their required two moves in January. 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 2021 and conducted a baseline inspection of the entire property. Hanapohaku and others received the report on February 23rd, 2021. 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.

Please instruct the surfboard rental not to display boards against the plant boxes as that is Hacking for tourists and that is completely against the MSA Thanks

Response

Hi John - We disagree that this violates the MSA but we are happy to ask the surf shop to move their surfboards back from the planter boxes.

Regards,

I am following up on your message which was not recorded in the December report. We would like confirmation by email that the surfboards have been moved away from the planter boxes. Also, we remind you that it is Hanapohaku's responsibility as well as the tenants to comply with all aspects of the Settlement Agreement including the hawking provision. Also, please direct your tenants to remove the display of snorkels and ocean gear from the ropes and outdoor displays

Response

Hi John - Rest assured that your message will be included in the January report. Our December update was finalized on December 29th before the holiday weekend. We can confirm that the tenant agreed to move their surfboards back. 

Section 16 of the MSA states: "Developer agrees to prohibit the use of "hawking," inflatable figures, toys, or structures, sign twirlers, tents, lights, and signage in violation of applicable laws, signage within 30 feet of the highway, and signage extending further than three feet away from the exterior of any building or food truck, except for educational and traffic safety signage referenced in paragraphs 12 and 13." We are in compliance with this provision. If there is a disagreement about how to interpret this section we are happy to discuss in mediation as outlined in the MSA.

Regards,

Hanapohaku
