Thanksgiving - A time of gathering of family and friends to
give thanks for all the blessing of the past, the present and
the yet to be.  We share the privilege of living in this
special place called Hawaii; every day is the perfect time
to be thankful.  Happy Thanksgiving.

            Hawai'i County ... a nice place to live.

   Live Aloha ... an expression of a deep sense of belonging
   to a community and caring for each other.  Each of us can
   improve our community by our individual and collective
   actions. Each of us has that responsibility.  If we act
   with courtesy and caring, the Hawaii we value will be
   strengthened.  http://www.ealoha.com/livaloha.htm

KEAHOLE TO KAILUA INFORMATION FORUM & FAIR
http://co.hawaii.hi.us/info/k2k/luc-k2k.pdf

County, State, Federal and private interests recently met in
a cooperative Information Forum and Fair to discuss
regional transportation and pollution prevention issues in
the Keahole to Kailua corridor in North Kona.

The meeting, co-sponsored by Hawaii County and the State Land
Use Commission, was called in response to a condition put on
TSA's industrial expansion at Kaloko Light Industrial Park.

The objective of the event was to provide opportunities for
information dissemination/clarification on transportation,
infrastructure, environmental compliance and pollution
prevention issues and the status of transportation and
infrastructure plans for the North Kona region.

The Informational Forum and Fair provided an unprecedented
opportunity to meet and discuss issues and concerns with
various County, State and Federal representatives.

The participant list was extensive and diverse, involving the
public, regional landowners and representatives, and a
variety of County, State & Federal Departments & Divisions:

County of Hawaii:
   Mayor's Office
   Planning Department
   Public Works Department
   Environmental Management Department
      Wastewater Division

   Department of Business & Economic Development
      Office of Planning
      Land Use Commission
      Coastal Zone Management Program
   Department of Transportation
   Department of Health
      Environmental Health Administration
         Environmental Planning Office

the region, including proposed road alignments, anticipated

County's flood study in the neighboring area, as well as
TSA's drywell monitoring demonstration project.

Peter Boucher, Hawaii County Wastewater Division Chief for
the Department of Environmental Management, spoke on the
proposed changes to the Kealakehe Wastewater Treatment
Facility, as well as discussed the proposed regional
wastewater improvement district concept.

Anthony Ching, Executive Officer with the State Land Use
Commission, moderated a Pollution Prevention (P2) Planning
Process where participants developed a pollution runoff
planning model based on an assumed site, development proposal
and geographical characteristics.

Emphasis was looking beyond simply complying with
environmental regulations and proactively planning a
pollution prevention program that could mitigate impacts to
neighboring communities and ecosystems.

Brian Minaai, Director of the State Department of
Transportation, presented information on the Hawaii Statewide
Transportation Plan, Hawaii Long-Range Land Transportation
Plan Update, Statewide Transportation Improvement Program,
State Highway Projects and Impact Fees.

This information forum and fair is part of an ongoing attempt
to have parties work together, internally within the County,
cooperatively between the County and various other
governmental agencies (State and Federal,) and the various
levels of government with the people we serve.

The focus of the gathering was cooperative discussions about
the future of this area. This model can be duplicated in
other areas on the island or around the state.
