Many testify in opposition to Phase I construction at the special hearing held by Council member Heidi Tsuneyoshi today. Mahalo for those that came out today and those that submitted online. Also read the Mayorʻs letter dated May 28, 2019. Some memorable quotes from testifiers says it all:
Its an overwhelming feeling of being over-run, bulldozed and dismissed.
Leave nature… nature
“Keiki” only mentioned in the plan to paint the walls, even though you said its for them.
Should never gotten this far.
Frankly, Oʻahu is falling apart but yet you are tearing down trees that takes 100s and 100s of years to grow.
I watch the destruction everyday while sign waving.
Why do WE pay with the quality of our lives for others outside of our community?
Its sad to see the destruction, the hewa, the auwe. This project will change the feeling and being of our place forever.
