Whoa! 34,500 SF of retail, 126 parking stalls, five food trucks with extra stalls - and lots more.
This is bigger than Haleʻiwa Stores Lots built by Kamehameha Schools.
See "Renderings" below - all designed to attract tourism.
If permits are issued, construction could begin within weeks or months - creating even more congestion at this busy area for our community,
At SaveSharksCoveAlliance, we envision a new North Shore First Responder Center that directly serves urgent community needs. The first responders could use the existing small buildings on site.
With support from the City, a small center could be built that would have major positive impact on community!
With additional support, a larger state-of-the-art center could be built. For all three alternatives, the City/State would need to acquire the parcels from the developer - or the developer could donate the land for the benefit for our community.
SSCA has made repeated and continuing efforts to enforce the 2021 Settlement Agreement.
Although many provisions have resulted in major improvements on the site,
SSCA believes that Hanapohaku continues to violate the spirit and letter of many other provisions of the Settlement.
SSCA has and will continue to monitor, dialogue, mediate, reveal, and bird dog these compliance problems.
One egregious example is the overflowing grease trap reported to DOH in December 2021, reportedly causing employees to slip and fall in the grease seeping on the ground.
This serious failure to maintain the wastewater treatment system resulted in Notice of Violation from the State Department of Health and fines for an "inoperable" wastewater treatment system, "active spilling," and "strong and continuous adverse odors."
Hanapohaku paid a $200 fine in Jan. 2022 and was required to enter into a maintenance contract for all wastewater treatment units.
See the documents below - obtained by SSCA from the DOH - for all the gory details.
