STAND. COM. REP. NO.1409-02
RE: S.C.R. No. 12
Honorable Calvin K.Y. Say
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2002
State of Hawaii
Your Committees on Economic Development and Business Concerns and Tourism and Culture, to which was referred S.C.R. No. 12, S.D. 1, entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, AND TOURISM, IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION, TO DEVELOP A MASTER PLAN FOR THE HONOLULU WATERFRONT,"
beg leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this concurrent resolution is to request the Department of Business, Economic Development, and Tourism (DBEDT), in conjunction with the Department of Transportation (DOT), to develop a master plan for the Honolulu waterfront.
DOT submitted testimony in support of this measure. DBEDT submitted testimony in support of the intent of this measure.
Your Committees note that developing a new or amended master plan for the Honolulu waterfront would require a significant amount of staff and funding. While there is no funding associated with this measure, your Committees request that DBEDT and DOT address this issue to the extent possible with available moneys and resources, and, at a minimum, present a report to the Legislature on the status of the current master plan that was created in 1989.
As affirmed by the records of votes of the members of your Committees on Economic Development and Business Concerns and Tourism and Culture that are attached to this report, your Committees concur with the intent and purpose of S.C.R. No. 12, S.D. 1, and recommend its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committees on Economic Development and Business Concerns and Tourism and Culture,
JERRY CHANG, Chair
LEI AHU ISA, Chair
