lol! that is funny!!! sad but true too. Once they get rid of the plants, the temps will rise and rise. Major mistake to do that. Any projects should have built into them extra-adequate setback, landscaping in layers, proper drainage, water, etc. Anything less than that will only degrade further year by year. Oahu needs to stop now. They have enough. Only caveat I can think of is properly done centers at each train stop, living, business, police, infrastructure, setbacks, landscaping, etc. And leave NO benches that can become a bed for these guys. Here they have started to put in big round raised bars between each seat, and no solid metal, wood, etc to be comfortable. Just wire backs, seating. Keeps them open for the proper usage.This is right up there with the citation for no demo permit when tenants burned down my rental.
Then months later another one of the govt drones called to see if any rats survived the fire.
WE should make a video called how govt. is denuding Oahu of trees (thousand for the train deal alone). Welcome to the concrete paradise.
Must be they have a bunch of junk workers with family ties. Similar to situation with school administrators. 3X more of them than teachers.
Of course I can store trash in front which is happily accepted. Junk cars are known as Hawaiian fence.
Before that you would see homeless guys sleeping on the bench, with an extension of a BLUE TENT-tarps for indoor space for 3-4 others, then shopping carts tied to the bench full of junk that they have collected. 2-4 people could huddle inside the tent that covered half the bench, and the people waiting for the bus had to stand behind all of this because there was no where to sit. Laws here say you can't roust the homeless until after 9PM...until then they can piss all over everything and the police can't touch them. neighbors write in the local papers how they sleep in there front yards in the buses, crap all over the yards have sex, drugs, whatever, and cops can't touch it until 9pm. People starting to sleep on the sidewalks, in the gutter, in every corner strip center, all the doorways, etc. This is Santa Monica, Vencie, etc. City council fights everything, so this will eventually blow up as the people are angry at the liberals who are paralysed and afraid to act lest they catch hell from the other libs who want to walk naked down the street smoking dope. It is amazing to see these fools screem like hell.
