RESOLUTION

 

REQUESTING THE CITY AND COUNTY OF HONOLULU TO CONSTRUCT A MULTI-PURPOSE CENTER IN NUUANU VALLEY.

 

 

WHEREAS, for a number of years, Nuuanu residents have sought a public gathering place for the community in a safe, user-friendly environment; and

WHEREAS, Community Vision Group No. 12 (Group) requested and received funding to do a site selection study to locate a multi-purpose center (Center) in Nuuanu Valley; and

WHEREAS, the Group worked in collaboration with a consultant hired by the City and County of Honolulu and considered many sites, both public and private, for the location of the Center; and

WHEREAS, a task force sub-committee was formed to review alternative sites for the Center; and

WHEREAS, after careful review of these sites, and evaluations as to the beneficial and detrimental aspects of each site, the Group, along with the task force sub-committee, decided that locating the Center on public land would be less costly and more feasible; and

WHEREAS, additional funding is being requested in FY 2003 to continue the process to implement a plan for the design and construction of the Center; and

WHEREAS, the preferred site is at Nuuanu Valley Park, at the corner of Pali Highway and Puiwa Road, with a land area of 6.2-4 acres; and

WHEREAS, the alternative sites suggested by the Group, along with the task force sub-committee, include sites at Pali Highway above Pulelehua Way with a land area of 73 acres, and Nuuanu Elementary School at the end of Puiwa Lane with a land area of 7.1 acres; now, therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED by the House of Representatives of the Twenty-first Legislature of the State of Hawaii, Regular Session of 2002, the Senate concurring, that the City and County of Honolulu is requested to construct a Center on one of the three sites recommended by the Group to serve the recreational, educational, and social needs of the residents of Nuuanu Valley; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that certified copies of this Concurrent Resolution be transmitted to the Mayor of the City and County of Honolulu, members of the Honolulu City Council, the facilitator and consultant to the Group, and the Chairperson of the Nuuanu Neighborhood Board No. 12.
