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 March. 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.

Can you guys clean up and trim your palms and remove dead ones from the Pahoe rd side of your fence?

At our January 17, 2024 meeting a member recommended that Hanapohaku update the Sunset Beach Community Association on their plans. Hanapohaku's attorney, Christian Adams was in attendance via Zoom. I'm assuming that Mr. Adams informed you of this request for an update. The agenda for this coming meeting is full but we would welcome a presentation at our next meeting on May 15, 2024 via Zoom. We can set aside 10 minutes for for your presentation with a Q & A following. Let us know. Thank you

Response

Aloha Yvonne - We do not have plans to make a presentation at the moment. 

Thank you,

Hanapohaku

Response

Hi John - We recently had our landscaper clean up everything on Pahoe Road. Is there something specific you are referring to? Is it possible to send a photo?

Thanks,
