PARC Seawall Repairs Resume April 14

From: Bugala, Amy Ms CIV US USA IMCOM Cc: Overton, Kayla R Ms CIV US USA IMCOM
Classification: UNCLASSIFIED
Caveats: NONE

Aloha Senator Shimabukuro:

UPDATE: Pilila`au Army Recreation Center (PARC) seawall repairs will now start April 14. Please consider posting this update on your web site and in social media. Mahalo.

_____________________________________________________________

PARC SEAWALL REPAIR RESUMES
WAIANAE, Hawaii – Community members should be advised that repair work on portions of the Pilila’au Army Recreation Center (PARC) seawall is not expected to start until April 14.

Recreation activities will be limited around the work site, as there will be temporary barricades and construction equipment staging near the project.
Beach users should take appropriate safety precautions when around this area.  Caution signs will be posted around the work area.

Repairs will consist of placing reinforced concrete on the first 180 feet of the existing seawall, as this area is in danger of collapse. Sandbags, boulders and other construction materials will not be placed in the ocean, as all work will be done above the high water mark.

The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of May, pending weather and ocean swells.

PARC staff appreciates your patience and cooperation during this facility improvement project.  For further information, call the U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii Public Affairs Office at 656-3159.

Mahalo,
Amy

Kolekole Pass Update

On 4/9/11, my community liaison, Chasid Sapolu, attended a sight tour of Kolekole Pass (KP) hosted by Captain Richard W. Kitchens, the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Commander.  The purpose of the site tour was to view and discuss the issues and possibilities surrounding the reopening of KP road as a state evacuation route.  Mr. Sapolu’s report follows:

The Wash-Out Location
Tour began at an area of the KP road where heavy rains have caused significant damage to the passage way.  The erosion removed a quater of the road into a ditch, and in the middle of the road was a crack that Capt. Kitchen explained could possibly mark the area that might crumble into the ditch under rain or the weight of heavy vehicles.

The stability of this area is unknown and the extent of damage raises safety and liability issues.  As such, under no circumstance will the military open KP to public use.  The military believes that any emergency that might require opening KP cannot be compared to the safety issues that surround the wash-out area and conditions of KP in general.  Capt. Kitchen also cited security issues and regulations regarding civilians near explosive ordinances as additional reasons why the military is less inclined to open KP for public use at this time.

There are two possible solutions to repairing the “Wash-Out” area:

1) Total Repair of Wash-Out Area
– Bring area back up to par, safe for use (possibly a permanent bridge)
– Cost: $7-$10m
– Would take a couple years to complete (install anchors into soils)
– Repair expected to last 25 years

2) Bailey Bridge
– A bridge that would bypass the wash-out area and connect the KP road.
– Cost: $2.5m
– Would take 9-12 months to complete (soil tests, construction, etc.)
– Expected to last 8-12 years with constant maintenance.

Remainder of KP Road

The tour also included a short walk down KP road where Capt. Kitchen showed us the conditions of the area.  On the sides of the road are deep ditches caused by rain erosion, some parts of the asphalt were eroded so much that constant gravel filling was required.  The Capt also explained that there are many parts of the passage that are susceptible to rock falls (large boulders) posing yet another risk to use of KP.

Future of KP
The military has no motive to repair the wash-out area as there is no “mission-purpose” for it to be used.  However, Capt. Kitchen did express a desire to partner with government (City and/or State)  to secure funds from elsewhere to permit needed repairs. 

Capt. Kitchen also mentioned that it is the ultimate goal of the Navy to, “eventually,” leave the Lualualei annex (consolidate all materials/needs to West Loch).  The Capt. explained however, that it would likely be over 10 years before such a move could be completed as the Air Force and Army utilize portions of the Annex.

To bring the entire KP road up to par and adequate for public use, would cost approximately $100 million. 

DVD of Tour/Conclusion

There was a videographer on the tour who took photos and video footage.  The military public affairs office will be sending a DVD of the tour to our office.

Overall, the tour was an informative look at KP, the military’s standpoint on this issue, and the possible future surrounding the area. Capt. Kitchen and his crew were very accommodating and open to answering questions, it appears that he sincerely hopes to partner up with the State or City to garner sufficient funds to bring KP up to acceptable standards.

REMARKS HONORING AUNTY AGGIE COPE – SENATOR MAILE SHIMABUKURO (April 8, 2011)

Mr. President:

For the second time this session, I am privileged to rise and speak of a distinguished woman from my Wai’anae Coast district.  One month ago, it was to pay tribute to the memory of Aunty Frenchy DeSoto.   Today, it is another legendary Auntie—a woman whose lifetime achievements are legendary not only among my constituents, but across the state.

Generations of Wai’anae residents remember Auntie Aggie as their teacher in local public school—and later as their mentor in helping them discover the riches of their Hawaiian cultural roots.  They know her as a woman who cares deeply and personally for their health and well-being.  And they respect her for the well-deserved recognition of her life’s work—most notably the Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters bestowed on her in 2009 by her Alma Mater, the University of Hawaii.

The list of her many contributions to our community is far too long to enumerate today.  I must acknowledge, however, her role as a founder of the Wai’anae Coast Comprehensive Health Center.  For those of us who depend on this great facility for our everyday healthcare needs, it is hard to imagine what life was like before Wai’anae Comp!  And it is through Auntie Aggie’s influence that traditional healing practices are an essential component of the services it provides for our people.

Finally, we are honored to have our Governor with us today—crowning our Senate celebration with a proclamation that declares today as “AGNES KALANIHO`OKAHA COPE” Day in Hawaii.  I have heard Governor Abercrombie say on more than one occasion—with great pride—that he is Auntie Aggie’s hanai son.  Who wouldn’t be proud to make such a claim!

Auntie Aggie, on behalf of your friends and neighbors on the Wai’anae Coast—and along with my colleagues in the Senate—I welcome you … and thank you for all you done over so  many years for the people of Hawaii.   Aloha!

MAILE RESPONDS: WILL HI RESIDENTS BE LEFT WITHOUT HURRICAN INSURANCE IF ANOTHER DISASTER STRIKES?

Dear Ms. H.:

After careful research on your question it would be extremely difficult to determine if insurance companies will leave Hawaii if the hurricane relief funds are taken to balance the budget. After Hurricane Iniki in 1992 the insurance industry suffered huge losses on Kauai. This is the reason why the companies stopped offering hurricane insurance in Hawaii.

The HI Hurricane Relief Fund was set up in 1992 in response to the insurance companies’ pull out. This fund was set up to offer insurance to homeowners with mortgages contingent on hurricane insurance policies, but was abolished in 2001 (see more information below).

The insurance companies that offer hurricane riders are in the insurance business of making money, but in the event there is a loss the policy holder is covered. What would cause insurance companies to pull out of Hawaii is probably another catastrophic Hurricane.
Another concern I often hear is whether HI residents would be left without hurricane insurance if the relief fund is used to help balance the budget. As history, last year the legislature passed SB2124 authorizing $67 million from the Hawaii Hurricane Relief Fund to end the public school Furlough Fridays for fiscal year beginning July 1, 2010.

Now during the 2011 session, some advocates argue that using the Hurricane Relief Fund, which currently has a balance of about $110 million, to help address the over $1.3 billion dollar shortfall, is appropriate. Here’s why:
1) The Hurricane Relief Fund, which was attached to the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs, is no longer an active program. The mandatory annual contribution by property owners into the fund was abolished in 2001.
2) Concern: People frequently ask, “What happens when we are hit by another hurricane? We need the money from the Hurricane Relief Fund to help with disaster relief.”
Response: The Hurricane Relief Fund was originally created after Hurricane Iniki, when private sector insurance companies ceased offering hurricane insurance. While the fund once served to provide hurricane insurance to Hawaii’s mortgage holders, the re-entry of private sector insurance firms into the hurricane coverage market has negated this need. The fund no longer provides insurance policies, and moneys currently left are no longer needed to provide this service. While some may believe the fund is supposed to be used for reconstruction in the wake of a future hurricane, this is not the case.
3) Concern: What about people who paid into the fund in past years? Shouldn’t they get their money back?

Response: No. Like any other insurance policy, once the policy ends, the insured does not receive back the amount of the premium.
4) Concern: The current insurance commissioner has testified that the funds should remain in place in case the program needs to be reactivated in the future.
Response: The fund balance, according to statute, should be transferred to the general fund.

5) Concern: The balance is considered one of the state’s reserves, and plays an important role in qualifying Hawaii for a strong bond rating.
Response: While no one wants to tap into the fund if possible, most agree that the potential loss of critical services due to our fiscal crisis is serious enough to warrant setting money aside from the Hurricane Relief Fund.
People also ask about the Rainy Day Fund, which may be used to balance the budget. The Rainy Day Fund receives money on an annual basis from the tobacco settlement agreement. It’s not related to the Hurricane Relief Fund. The Rainy Day Fund is officially called the Emergency and Budget Reserve Fund. The purpose of the Rainy Day fund is to help programs in education, health and human services. Thus, the use of the Rainy Day Fund for social services, homeless services, housing, healthcare, education, etc. is appropriate.

I hope I have helped to address your concerns. If you’d like to be added to my email newsletter, send an email to: waianaecoast-subscribe@yahoogroups.com
