STAND. COM. REP. NO.3485
RE: H.C.R. No. 18
Honorable Robert Bunda
President of the Senate
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water, Land, Energy and Environment, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 18 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE LEASE OF EASEMENT COVERING PORTION OF SUBMERGED LANDS AT LAHAINA, MAUI, HAWAII, FOR CONCRETE PIER AND DECK PURPOSES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to authorize the Board of Land and Natural Resources (Board) to lease an easement covering a portion of submerged lands at Lahaina, Maui, for concrete pier and deck purposes.
Testimony in support of this measure was received from the Department of Land and Natural Resources.
Your Committee finds that in 1988, the applicants requested after-the-fact approvals for a concrete pier and deck encroachment on state submerged lands at Lahaina. The deck, extending forty feet seaward from the applicant's property, is used as part of the Lahaina Fish Company restaurant. In 1989, the Board approved both a Conservation District Use Application and the issuance of a term, non-exclusive easement for the state submerged lands.
Your Committee supports this concurrent resolution to allow for the direct lease of the easement for submerged lands as required under Section 171-53, Hawaii Revised Statutes.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water, Land, Energy and Environment that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 18, and recommends its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water, Land, Energy and Environment,
LORRAINE R. INOUYE, Chair
