STAND. COM. REP. NO. 3187
RE: H.C.R. No. 34
Honorable Colleen Hanabusa
President of the Senate
Twenty-Fifth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2010
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water, Land, Agriculture, and Hawaiian Affairs, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 34 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION APPROVING THE FEE SIMPLE SALE OF KEKUILANI VILLAGE 4, THE VILLAGES OF KAPOLEI, KAPOLEI, HAWAII,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to approve the fee simple sale of Kekuilani Village 4 of the Villages of Kapolei, in Kapolei, Oahu.
Testimony in support of the measure was submitted by one state agency and two private organizations. Testimony in opposition was submitted by one state agency. Written testimony presented to the Committee may be reviewed on the Legislature's website.
Your Committee finds that the fee simple sale of this parcel to a developer will expedite the completion of the Villages of Kapolei master plan by providing land for additional affordable housing. The parcel is 2.490 acres with thirty-five single-family cluster lots and 0.362 acres of shared driveways. The Hawaii Housing Finance and Development Corporation used the Request for Proposals procurement process to select Castle & Cooke Homes Hawaii, Inc. as the developer of the parcel. The parties executed a development agreement on March 8, 2007, which became effective on September 19, 2007. The development agreement, including the affordability requirements, is intended to be recorded as an encumbrance on the subject properties and continue as covenants running with the land.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Clarifying the purpose of the sale of the parcels;
(2) Including a provision specifying that a copy of the measure was submitted to the Office of Hawaiian Affairs and the date of the submission, in accordance with section 171-64.7, Hawaii Revised Statutes;
(3) Clarifying the language in the provision regarding objections to the sale of the parcels; and
(4) Making technical, nonsubstantive changes for the purpose of style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water, Land, Agriculture, and Hawaiian Affairs that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 34, as amended herein, and recommends its adoption in the form attached hereto as H.C.R. No. 34, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water, Land, Agriculture, and Hawaiian Affairs,
CLAYTON HEE, Chair
