RE: H.R. No. 4
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Twenty-Ninth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2018
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Housing, to which was referred H.R. No. 4 entitled:
"HOUSE RESOLUTION URGING THE CITY AND COUNTY OF HONOLULU TO REDUCE WAIT TIMES FOR HOUSING CONSTRUCTION PERMITS,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to urge the City and County of Honolulu to review its permit requirements, processes, and zoning laws to reduce the wait times for building permits to less than six months and to reevaluate and shorten the time for receipt of permits for accessory and ohana dwelling units intended for residential rental.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Housing that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.R. No. 4 and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Housing,
TOM BROWER, Chair
