Kioni Dudley makes sense. You need the proper infrastructure before building more houses. Stop the development and maintain the badly needed agricultural lands! Maeda Timson and her old timers have pushed development at the expense of the quality of life of the residents. Auwe!

Campbell Estate sold their soul to profit from the suckers who bought into the "second city". It's too late to get the infrastructure right - they already screwed it up. The only hope is to have the mass transit designed and built properly.

Whatever happened to the West Oahu Development where the business center was supposed to move to the Leeward side of the island preventing traffic moving Ewa to Diamond Head? City and County was supposed to move most of the operations there along with the State. West Oahu College should have been built by now... Financial institutions should have relocated to the Ewa Plain. H2 should have been connecting traffic moving Ewa and not to Honolulu.

Plans or the lack of future "planned" development takes another hit because of politics. What a shame.

It's been "planned" for decades, but the truth behind the public relations spin is all about ramming through zoning changes, then developing and building as fast as they can. Financiers and developers need to make money, and politicians need monied backers to rise in their careers. Overdevelopment is good for business, but it's hell on people squished in tract housing, with 2 hour commutes to town. The current rail plan isn't really intended to alleviate traffic; that's only the bait. Without so much as a shovel in the ground, or a dollar of federal funding, the possibility of rail has brought about an excise tax increase not approved by voters, and has advanced zoning and land use changes that will allow even more development upward and outward on the west side, with scantier infrastructure than ever before. Slam dunk. Mufi, you're a pro.

There are many things that don't make any sense in Hawaii.

For instance, if there is such a thing as zoning, how in the WORLD can a watercress farm not only be surrounded by commercial development, but be right next to a major shopping mall?

And now that the threat of a pandemic is more of a reality, how in the WORLD can a major shopping mall be only right next to a medical complex?

And how can that medical complex be not farther away from a suburban development?

And by the way, if there is such a thing a Homeland Security, how come there are sailboats sailing across Pearl Harbor?

And isn't having a major sports stadium next to Pearl Harbor like having a lighthouse next to a military target?

Yep, they don't give a flying F**K about you the taxpayers....its all about keeping the corrupt system in place, crooked politicians, judges, family members, cronies, bank sleaze executives, corrupt Union officials....all on the take to line their pockets with greed at the expense of the environment and of course your wallets in the form of higher taxes, traffic jams...pollution.

When the dust settles, these crooks will be laughing to the banks, with money in their pockets and the taxpayers holding an empty bag!

Email Mufi - What a laugh that is. He is busy playing music on the radio.

With the current water bill is a notice that sewer fees are going up another 18%. Last time I figured it out, it was 280% of water bill so is probably over 300% now.

READ this -$100 water usage add on $300 sewer for a total of $400. Low income housing? What a laugh ~ with these fees plus raised property taxes and get, not even high paid executives will afford life here.

AND we all know that these fees go to help developers with more of the hideous mass building.
Plus in a speech his "HONOR" insulted the EPA saying they did not know anything so we can look forward to a billion dollar sewer improvement cost as payback.
