STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1280
RE: H.C.R. No. 147
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water & Land, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 147 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THAT A WORKING GROUP BE CONVENED TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS ON FLOOD MITIGATION AT THE INTERSECTION OF EAST MANOA ROAD AND OAHU AVENUE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to request that a working group be convened to make recommendations on flood mitigation at the intersection of East Manoa Road and Oahu Avenue.
Your Committee finds that the intersection of East Manoa Road and Oahu Avenue in Honolulu frequently floods following a downpour and, when flooded, becomes nearly impassable to motor vehicles and hazardous to pedestrians. Your Committee further finds that these conditions may delay emergency vehicles trying to access Manoa Valley. Creating a working group to study and make recommendations on flood mitigation at this intersection will allow the Legislature to make well-considered decisions on how best to address this problem.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water & Land that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 147 and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water & Land,
DAVID A. TARNAS, Chair
