STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1517
RE: H.C.R. No. 16
Honorable Scott K. Saiki
Speaker, House of Representatives
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 16 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF A TERM, NON-EXCLUSIVE EASEMENT COVERING A PORTION OF STATE SUBMERGED LANDS AT KAALAWAI, HONOLULU, OAHU, FOR THE EXISTING SEAWALL, AND FOR USE, REPAIR, AND MAINTENANCE OF THE EXISTING IMPROVEMENTS CONSTRUCTED THEREON,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to authorize the Board of Land and Natural Resources to issue a term, non-exclusive easement covering a portion of state submerged lands at Kaalawai, Honolulu, Oahu, for the existing seawall constructed on those state submerged lands, and the use, repair, and maintenance of the existing improvements constructed thereon.
Your Committee finds that portions of an existing seawall fronting private property located in Kaalawai, and spanning 214 square feet, encroaches onto state submerged lands. Your Committee further finds that the Department of Land and Natural Resources granted a 55-year non-exclusive easement to run with the land and to inure to the benefit of the abutting real property to resolve the encroachment. This measure authorizes the granting of a term, non-exclusive easement, as required by state law, for the portion of identified state submerged lands in Kaalawai that have been encroached upon by the seawall, and for the use, repair, and maintenance of the existing improvements constructed thereon.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 16 and recommends its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Consumer Protection & Commerce,
AARON LING JOHANSON, Chair
