STAND. COM. REP. NO.1074-02
RE: H.C.R. No. 118
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Human Services and Housing, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 118 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REAFFIRMING SUPPORT FOR THE HOUSING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION OF HAWAII'S HOPE VI REVITALIZATION GRANT APPLICATION FOR KUHIO PARK TERRACE AND URGING THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT TO ACT FAVORABLY ON THE APPLICATION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this concurrent resolution is to reaffirm the Legislature's support of the Housing and Community Development Corporation of Hawaii's (HCDCH) 2002 HOPE VI revitalization grant application for Kuhio Park Terrace (KPT), and to urge the United States Housing and Urban Development to act favorably on the application.
HCDCH testified in strong support of this measure.
Your Committee finds that KPT is one of the State's most troubled public housing projects. HCDCH worked with KPT residents and the community to prepare a master plan that will transform KPT into a vibrant, supportive, and sustainable community. The HOPE VI grant will help the master plan become a reality.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Human Services and Housing that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 118 and recommends that it be referred to the Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Human Services and Housing,
MICHAEL P. KAHIKINA, Chair
