STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1712
RE: H.C.R. No. 97
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirty-First State Legislature
Regular Session of 2021
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Transportation, to which was referred H.C.R. No. 97 entitled:
"HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE FORMATION OF A TASK FORCE ON NORTH ROAD MANAGEMENT,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to request the formation of a task force for the management of North Road.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from one member of the Honolulu City Council and five individuals. Your Committee received comments on this measure from the Department of Transportation.
Your Committee finds that deferred maintenance and upkeep of North Road in Ewa Beach is a serious concern for residents. Three separate entities own various portions of the road and all of them should work together to manage the road. This measure requests that the stakeholders form a task force to solve the management issue of North Road.
Your Committee has amended this measure by substituting the City and County of Honolulu for the Department of Transportation as the entity requested to organize the task force meetings.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Transportation that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of H.C.R. No. 97, as amended herein, and recommends that it be referred to your Committee on Ways and Means, in the form attached hereto as H.C.R. No. 97, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Transportation,
CHRIS LEE, Chair
