The group still has three public access easement projects in the <br />works. Ms. Withington stated that the group had made an effort to purchase the Hono'ipu land <br />from Parker Ranch but the property has been sold to a new private owner. <br />The group has nominated several parcels to PONC. Committee Member Coakley inquired about <br />the status of the potential parking lot at the Pololu lookout. Ms. Withington responded that the <br />parking lot initiative has come to a halt at this point. Committee Member Coakley also inquired <br />about natural resource protection in relation to the newly established shoreline access <br />easements. Ms. Withington answered that the maintenance fund is %% of the property taxes <br />collected, and is intended to provide for the stewardship and maintenance of the parcels <br />purchased by the County. <br />Chair Hoffmann asked who manages and administers the maintenance funds for such projects, <br />and if will there be enough funding to continue to maintain these properties. Ms. Withington <br />replied that currently there is about 6 million in the fund, but that she cannot be certain of <br />future funding. <br />Please see the group reports below for further details regarding shoreline access and PONC <br />submissions. <br />Comm.
