STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1864
RE: H.C.R. No. 147
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Water and 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 and intent 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 received testimony in support of this measure from twelve individuals.
Your Committee finds that the intersection of East Manoa Road and Oahu Avenue is the primary ingress and egress to and from Manoa Valley. Your Committee further finds that the frequent flooding of this intersection has occurred for over sixty years and remains a hazard to pedestrians, motorists, including emergency and public safety vehicles, and residents of the area. This measure seeks to facilitate dialogue between the community and elected officials of Manoa to explore flood mitigation solutions at this intersection.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Water and Land that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 147, and recommends its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water and Land,
LORRAINE R. INOUYE, Chair
