Yesterday afternoon at 3:00 PM two KCA directors joined our two State elected legislators, Sen Roz Baker and Representative Tina Wildberger, some school administrators, parents, DOE’s Kathleen Dimono , Lauren Loor of Healthy Eating & Active Living (HEAL) , Blue Zones’ Project Rep Laksmi Abraham and a few others at the State Department of Transportation (DOT) facility in Kahului near the airport. The purpose was a presentation on the “Safe Routes To School” Program, which was a ninety minute offering by three presenters, Coordinator Tara Lucas and Safety Coordinator Dana Taramoto from DOT, and Civil Engineer from the County’s Public Works, Kurt Wantanabe, via an extensive team slide presentation.
(However one aside which was not any part of the presentation: we did learn the DOT is working with MPD to potentially require a momentary all traffic stop at the intersection to allow the charter school a mass exit each school day afternoon – stay tuned)
And now for the presentation:
Tara led off and then they switched out speaking on the various segments.
