As I look at this development, I can’t help but wonder how you are going to accommodate all of the additional traffic on Pi’illani Highway which by everyone’s account…is currently over it’s capacity. If you look at the homes south of Keonekai on the west side of Pi’illani, there is between 36 to 40 feet of easement on the rear side of these properties all the way south of Kilohana. Currently there are days when you can’t even talk to your neighbor because it has gotten so loud with the increased traffic. What is going to happen when they complete these developments. Many homes don’t even have a guard rail behind their property which is an open path for vehicles to coming crashing in. I realize this is probably a State issue, but suggesting more development without infrastructure updates is irresponsible to say the least.

Mahalo Cheryl We completely concur. We note the current community plan from 1998 repeatedly calls for infrastructue concurrent with development, but that was totally violated. While the State Government is responsible for the Highway, it is the County government approving all the development. We all see doing the same thing & expecting a better outcome does not happen
