Privatization & Development Of Public Lands To Ignore Zoning & Land Use Laws

ilind.net - 
June 22, 2011

DBEDT director Richard Lim’s recent speech at a meeting of the Hawaii Economic Association spelled out his view that public lands represent a significant resource and opportunity for private development.

Now a bill signed into law by Governor Abercrombie provides muscle to move Lim’s vision towards reality.

Here’s what Lim had to say about development of public land.

"The State has vast land resources which currently represent a drain on the State’s coffers due to heavy maintenance costs. We cannot afford to pay for adequate upkeep so facilities are in disrepair and, consequently, become underutilized. Most residents don’t use them which often results in them attracting undesirable elements.

By engaging in public-private partnerships, we hope to turn this situation around. We will find private sector partners who are willing to make the requisite investments to renovate and revitalize our underutilized lands.

There are a number projects that can improve our infrastructure and provide improved facilities for the enjoyment of locals and tourists. And, partnering with the private sector minimizes the need for State funding or additional personnel.

Of course, there will always be the vocal minority that will object. Think of theSuperferry. And, there have been other projects that have been derailed by well heeled NIMBY’s and special interests.

While I am all for protecting the environment, we need to strike a balance. We can do responsible and sustainable development."

SB1555 CD1, quietly signed into law by the governor on May 20 as Act 55, will create a potentially very powerful Public Land Development Corporation to implement Lim’s strategy for privatizing public resources.

Lim will sit on the 5-member board along with the director of Finance and the Land Board chairman.

Two additional members will be appointed by the House Speaker and Senate President, and those members must have “sufficient knowledge, experience, and proven expertise in small and large businesses within the development or recreation industries, banking, real estate, finance, promotion, marketing, or management.”

Conservation? Environment? Public interests? No seat at the table.

The new PLDC is charged with selecting land from the state inventory and promoting private development for projects that but are not “limited to office space; vehicular parking; commercial uses; hotel, residential, and timeshare uses; fueling facilities; storage and repair facilities; and seawater air conditioning plants.”

The PLDC is broadly empowered to guarantee loans for developers, issue bonds to finance projects, and take other steps to push for development. It looks like a piggy bank for private investors and developers.

As I know under International Law, ONLY Natives from there mother land can vote and no other ethnicity CANNOT participate in that particular election. How America gotten there votes is HEWA because they was not to participate in that election with the Kanaka Maoli people. ONLY the Kanaka Maoli PEOPLE was suppose to vote for Statehood, that's why the petition was made, that was to warn the rest of the kanaka's along with the world on telling them that America did an illegal act against Hawaii. Did the world comply with that, no they didn't but to perpetuate the fraud that America committed against Hawaii. So Kanaka's, open your Maka's and your pepe au's cause this will happen again if we no watch out and not participate in the up coming elections on November 5, 2011. So please watch for the signs and register to vote cause this will make a difference with Hawaii, nationals, and the rest of the people. Remember if the cook islands are taking that responsibility to govern them selves, then why can't we. So I erg you to register and vote, our keiki's are depending on it.

Worrier's of the Kanaka's, I have a question for you. When the Alii's wear the papale on their heads during battle, what animal gave them that idea to wear that type of papale?

Native Hawaiian Recognition Bill Moves Forward in 2011 Legislature
Senate Bill 1520, which formally recognizes Native Hawaiian people as “the only indigenous, aboriginal, maoli people of Hawai’i,” was approved today by a joint conference of the Hawai’i State Senate and House conferees. The bill will now move to both houses of the State legislature for a final vote. If passed, it will then go to the Governor’s desk for his signature.
Senator Malama Solomon (D/Sen. Dist.1 – Waimea, Hamakua, North Hilo, portions of South Hilo), who has been a lead negotiator for Native Hawaiian recognition in the 2011 session, said “this is a historic and positive step in the reconciliation process between the State of Hawai’i and the Native Hawaiian people. By having the formal recognition by all of the people of these islands, this bill serves as strong evidence and testimony for our case pending before Congress for federal recognition of the Native Hawaiian people.”
Sen. Solomon, who represents a large portion of the Island of Hawai’i, has been working on the issue of Native Hawaiian recognition for more about three decades. “I well remember meeting with kupuna in the 1960s and ‘70s, and hearing stories of how they felt mistreated or discriminated against because of their ancestry,” she said. “Some progress towards reconciliation has certainly been made since then, but there is still much more to do and hopefully this Bill will move things forward.”
Senator Brickwood Galuteria (D/Sen. Dist 12 – Iwilei-Downtown-Kaka’ako-Waikiki), another lead negotiator of the legislation, echoed Solomon’s remarks. “Native Hawaiians are the original people of this land,” he said “and it’s only right that they be recognized as such and receive the same rights and benefits that are now given to all other native peoples in this country.
In addition to formal recognition by the State of Hawai’i, SB 1520, if passed and signed into law, also formally begins a process of creating a list of people who are of Native Hawaiian descent. Funds will be set aside to create a commission that will collect and register such names.
“We are the native people of this land,” said Sen. Solomon. “Nonetheless, we need to create a roll, a verified listing, of who we are by name and status, so that the whole world will know who we are … and that we stand up to be counted.”

Aloha no e Hawaii au,

This morning April 30 edition of the "Star-Aggravator" continues its
"in-direct" assault on Hawaiian Nationals just as Lorrin Thurston did
in the late 1800's. This time they validate their obsession with
Legislators of none other than Hawaiian blood. Since January 19th, I
have sat and testified in Legislative Hearing concerning the "welfare"
of Hawaiians. No truer word, welfare, describes this ordeal that goes
back to the year 2000 when U. S. Congress came to Honolulu Hawaii. On
page A-6, B. J. Reyes reports on the current 2011 actions of the
Legislature. Specifically, Senate Bill 1520 that would have the Office
of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) fund and administer the program and work
toward the continuing development of a native Hawaiian governing
entity with a five-member commission and a "registered roll of
Qualified Hawaiians". I use the term "in-direct" because it is
designed so that you do not realize you are the target. In some
campaigns it is also labeled a "victim of friendly fire".

"This gives the native Hawaiian people the standing---in terms of
recognition---by the state of Hawaii", said Sen. Malama Solomon (D.
Hilo-Honokaa), one of the key backers of the legislation. "It mandates
a roll call so that the native Hawaiian nation is actually

This no different than the old adage of what came first, "the 'Chicken
or the Egg"? Well, no legislations of the The Fake State of Hawaii had
anything to do in creating then and now the Hawaiian Nation. Nor did
its parents, the Territory of Hawaii, or its grandparents the Republic
of Hawaii. Certainly, is there anyone who believes the Hawaiian Nation
was created by the manifest destiny of the Committee of Safety? The
Hawaiian Nation of civilization and culture is at least 1000 recorded
years before all of these "claim-jumpers" came ashore to these
Islands. In fact, there are Hawaiian records that date a Hawaiians
existed an additional 1,000 before those "claim-jumpers" could speak
and communicate.
Hawaiian Nationals have never left the Hawaiian Nation. There are
Hawaiians who like all docile natives have traded their Nationality
for thirty pieces of silver to become anything but a Hawaiian
National, just as those who have traded their Hawaiian Archipelago Ko
Hawaii Pae Aina for a homestead. Recognition is bilateral. It is not a
"their-way" street.

Hawaiian Nationals do not need legislation or resolution to be
recognition, for we have never left or traded our makana of
Nationalism. Only "Legislative Hawaiians" have terminated. Take a
close look at the 1900 Organic of Hawaii Section 4, and the 1959
Admissions Act of Hawaii, Section 19. You are not Hawaiian Nationals
because you have assented or acquiesced to their unilateral
legislations. A'ole, before you think these sections were included to
protect you as a Hawaiian National, you are in a dilemma. It was
included up front to protect the 'Invader" of fraud and confuse you,
just as Senate Bill 1520 and the Akaka Pill is designed to do.

Hawaiian Nationals know "what they are". Who you are has nothing to do
with your Nationality. By the makana of King Kamehameha III,
Kaui'keaouli and the Grace of God Almighty, we have our identity,

On the subject of lua. On kauai there is a large resurgence of lua and i am nui haaheo to see this. according to my knowlege, the area for this was at waiehu(true name, or pololei inoa), and that is at wailua falls (modern name) in the valley around kawaikini area. My uncle told me a legend of this. At AUntie Kopeka funeral when the boys came, i told them the legend and told them to go there. The story is real, I beleive it I have spent many hours, and years there. The moolelo is very wonderful for this lua place. Practices were also demonstrated at malae heiau. ALso, women did indeed practice lua. But they were of the cheifess class, or high retainers. these were the "navy seals", the assasins of the high alii, and everything was done covertly. ALl were experienced at killing absolutely silently within seconds. Many many motions in hula kahiko come from lua. When kahiko was performed, on the great days, instead of outright battle, it substituted for the real thing, with the motions being done "as if" they were real as a challenge, hidden behind good "fun". Keep the secrets of lua. Because the art of what is really going on should not be always revealed in the sunlight of the day.
