DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION FY 2003-2004

A. Regional Stadium Complex $1,660,000

Antone Vidinha Stadium Complex Phase II

(Baseball Lighting - $800,000, Rubberized Track - $860,000)

Recently, ten acres of land adjacent to the existing stadium that were removed from agricultural use (cane land) were donated to the county. This project includes design and construction of the baseball field lighting and design and construction of a four hundred-meter rubberized track.

Phase II will be completed in two increments, with Increment I to include design and construction of the baseball field lighting, design, and construction of rubberized track. Phase II, Increment II will include design and construction of on-site utilities, site grading, drainage installation and landscaping, tennis court design and construction, and design for multi-purpose gymnasium/arena.

Phase III will be completed in two increments. Phase III, Increment I will include the construction of a fifty-meter swimming pool, and Increment II will include the construction of the multi-purpose gymnasium/arena.

B. Waimea High School/District Swimming Pool $600,000

This project consists of restoring and renovating a thirty-three-year old swimming pool to meet department of health regulations. Renovations and improvements are needed to comply with state and federal regulations. The scope of work consists of the following: replacing entire plumbing system; re-plastering pool shell; re-modeling chlorination room; replacing diving boards and ladders; installing handicap ramp and lift; and installing new chlorination system.

The Waimea swimming pool is utilized by hundreds of students from Waimea high school for their physical education classes and athletic departments. Community residents of areas that range from Kalaheo to Kekaha use the Waimea swimming pool. Currently, the Waimea swimming pool is the only county pool available for public use on the west side of Kauai.

DEPARTMENT OF ACCOUNTING & GENERAL SERVICES

C. Wailua Houselots Drainage Facilities $2,000,000

Haleilio, Lanakila, Hookipa, Nonou Roads Remaining Phase I

This project consists of plans, right-of-way, acquisition and construction of drainage flood control facilities and appurtenances for the Wailua houselots area. Wailua houselots was originally subdivided by the State of Hawaii. Initially, the development was intended for agricultural purposes, but land use changes have resulted in urbanization. Because of the original intended use, present drainage system consisting of open ditches and a few culverts is inadequate. Most of the storm run-off presently sheet flows through existing lots and consequently, the houselots becomes inundated, causing damage and flood associated problems to the residents. Roadways also become inundated with storm water and access becomes limited. Construction of a drainage system and appurtenances will provide relief for all concerned.

A drainage master plan for the Wailua houselots area consists of three increments of construction to abate the drainage and flooding problems which was developed in 1976. To date, the county has developed construction plans and completed the construction of Phase IA of the Wailua houselots drainage system. Plans for the Phase IA were developed in 1975-76 and constructed in 1976-77. Development of construction plans for the remaining portions of Phase I, Phase II (Eggerking, Pua and Kula Roads) and Phase III (Kihei and Kaulana Roads) were completed in fiscal year 1976-77. An increment of Phase I called Phase IA was developed in fiscal year 1979-80.

SECTION 3. The sums appropriated for the respective capital projects set forth in section 1 shall be expended by the designated expending agency for the purposes of this Act.

SECTION 4. This Act shall take effect on July 1, 2003.
