Hi Maile:

…The Concerned elders of Wai’anae, Nani O Wai’anae, KAHEA, American Friends Service Committee, Wai’anae Historical Society and others are running a petition drive [see description below]. [Could you please post on your blog so that any interested persons can sign the petition if they wish to do so?]

Petition:

Petition In Support of a Truly Sustainable Plan for the Wai’anae Coast
We support maintaining Wai’anae as a rural community and agricultural center for O’ahu. That is why we oppose the industrialization of our agricultural lands, including the industrial park proposed for the Tropic Lands parcel in Lualualei Valley.

We urge the city and County of Honolulu to adopt the Wai’anae Community Sustainability Plan Update without any industrial zones on agricultural land in Wai’anae.

A unified effort of The Concerned Elders of Wai’anae, Nani O Wai’anae, KAHEA: The Hawaiian-Environmental Alliance, American Friends Service Committee, Wai’anae Historical Society, and many others committed to supporting the rural community of the Wai’anae Coast. Return completed petitions to marti@kahea.org or 808-524-8220. For more, www.kahea.org

Mahalo,

Johnnie-Mae L. Perry
Concerned Resident of 96792
