No. 2019-02 <br />County of Hawaii <br />PLANNING DEPARTMENT <br />PUNA COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PLAN ACTION COMMITTEE <br />Aupuni Center • 101 Pauahi Street, Suite 3 • Hilo, Hawaii 96720 <br />Phone (808) 961-8288 • Fax (808) 961-8742 <br />March 6, 2019 <br />Michael Yee, Director <br />Planning Department <br />101 Pauahi Street, Suite 3 <br />Hilo, HI 96720 <br />Dear Mr. Yee: <br />Michael Yee <br />Director <br />Duane Kanuha <br />Deputy Director <br />Subject: Request to Forward Letter of Support to Mayor Kim Regarding the <br />Reestablishment of Access on Hi2hway 132, 137, and Pahoa-Pohoiki Road. <br />We respectfully request that you forward the attached support letter for the reestablishment of <br />Highway 132, 137, and Pahoa-Pohoiki Road to Mayor Kim with copies to each Puna Council Member, <br />the Governor, Hawaii State Legislators representing Puna, and each of the Hawaii federal legislators, <br />as well as the Kilauea Eruption Recovery Support Function Team. <br />In community outreach efforts post eruption, we have consistently heard from those affected by the <br />eruption the need to restore vehicular access so that residents may access their homes, lots, farms, and <br />businesses. Currently, numerous residents, farmers, and businesses are still unable to return to their <br />homes, farms, and their places of work unless they hike in or drive on alternate routes. <br />Mahalo for your consideration. <br />Sincerely, <br />Larry Brown <br />Chair, Puna CDP Action Committee <br />
