URGENT Message re: Kailua Bay

This is an urgent update from the Kmaxresdefaultailua Neighborhood Board about a Legislative Bill for a “slow-no-wake” zone for motorized boats in Kailua Bay.

The contents of our original bill HB803 was transferred to HB117. So now we must direct our support to HB117.  HB117 has been scheduled for a hearing this Tuesday, February 14. This is a low profile bill so we need to show that there is extensive support for it by attending the hearing, or submitting testimony. Testimony should include reference to such things as the very numerous recreational activities that occur in Kailua Bay, the congestion in the water, and the accidental death and injury that has already occurred, etc.

Sending in testimony is very simple. Go to www.capitol.hawaii.gov click on “submit testimony.” Sign in or sign up and go to “submit testimony” for HB117.

I think this bill has a good chance of passing, and we need it to provide the necessary safety in Kailua Bay for our residents and visitors. Please take the time to testify, and let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to forward this email.
