RE: H.B. No. 774
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred H.B. No. 774, H.D. 1, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO DEVELOPMENT DISTRICTS,"
The purpose and intent of this measure is to establish a Pulehunui Community Development District and Pulehunui Community Development Authority to redevelop, renovate, and improve public lands in Pulehunui, Maui.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the Department of Hawaiian Home Lands, Department of Land and Natural Resources, Department of Public Safety, and Hawaii Community Development Authority.
Your Committee finds that public lands may be developed and improved more efficiently by entities comprising residents, business owners, and public officials having close connections with the specific community development districts.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Amending the composition and duties of the Hawaii Community Development Authority;
(2) Establishing Community Development District Authority Boards to govern each of the community development districts;
(3) Reassigning certain powers and duties from the Hawaii Community Development Authority to the Community Development District Authority Boards; and
(4) Deleting, as redundant, the provisions of the measure that establish Pulehunui as an autonomous community development authority.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 774, H.D. 1, S.D. 1, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Third Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 774, H.D. 1, S.D. 2.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
