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 S.C.R. No. 58 entitled:
"SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION AUTHORIZING THE SALE OF A LEASE OF CERTAIN SUBMERGED LANDS AT KANEOHE BAY, KANEOHE, OAHU, FOR NON-COMMERCIAL BOAT PIER PURPOSES, BY PUBLIC AUCTION,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to authorize the Board of Land and Natural Resources to sell a lease of a portion of state submerged lands seaward of the property identified as Tax Map Key: (1)4-4-022:032, Kaneohe Bay, Kaneohe, Oahu, for non-commercial boat pier purposes, by public auction, pursuant to section 171-53(c), Hawaii Revised Statutes.
Your Committee received testimony in support of this measure from the Department of Land and Natural Resources.
Your Committee finds that, pursuant to section 171-53, Hawaii Revised Statutes, the Board of Land and Natural Resources may lease submerged lands with the prior approval of the Governor and the prior authorization of the Legislature by concurrent resolution. Your Committee further finds that at its meeting on July 26, 2019, under agenda item D-6, the Board of Land and Natural Resources, subject to conditions, approved a set-aside and management right-of-entry for approximately 6.5 acres of submerged lands seaward of Tax Map Key: (1)4-4-022:032, to the Department of Land and Natural Resources, Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation. Your Committee also finds that at its meeting on January 8, 2021, under agenda item J-2, the Board of Land and Natural Resources, subject to conditions, approved a grant of a fifty-five year lease of approximately 3.3648 acres of submerged lands seaward of Tax Map Key: (1)4-4-022:032, Kaneohe Bay, Kaneohe, Oahu, for non-commercial boat pier purposes, by public auction. Your Committee concludes that the lease is necessary for the use, repair, and maintenance of the existing piers.
Your Committee has amended this measure by making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for the purposes of clarity and consistency.
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 S.C.R. No. 58, as amended herein, and recommends its adoption in the form attached hereto as S.C.R. No. 58, S.D. 1.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Water and Land,
LORRAINE R. INOUYE, Chair
