SMA Minor Construction

New BMPs as designed in the SMA Minor permit were put in place before any sitework commenced. At the direction of the DPP inspector we have removed BMPs where the construction is complete and the grass is in place. The construction of the SMA Minor is completed and awaiting final inspection. The grading permit was closed on July 18, 2022. The final electrical work has been completed and we are awaiting a final inspection from HECO and DPP to close out the permit. 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 November. 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 and are awaiting a final inspection at the completion of the SMA minor construction.

Hello Keep mentioning the music from one of your tenants is to loud and it can be heard well over 600’ away. You keep saying you have spoken to your tenant but it seems to keep occurring. Most recent is Sunday 11/13 from 11am to about 2pm or more. This continues to break the settlement agreement and all City and County rules on noise. Please address again with your tenants. Thank you for your attention to this.


Hi John - Thank you for your submission. We have followed up with the tenant to make sure that any music complies fully with federal, state, and city laws regarding noise as required by the settlement. We will continue to monitor the situation and will remind all tenants to stay in compliance as required in their leases.
