TMT sublease appealed

August 28, 2014 - 2:44pm

An appeal of the Thirty Meter Telescope’s sublease was filed Monday in 3rd Circuit Court.

The state Board of Land and Natural Resources granted a sublease on Mauna Kea for the $1.3 billion project July 25.

The board also denied contested case requests regarding the sublease, and E. Kalani Flores, one of the five petitioners, is appealing both decisions.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the telescope is planned for Oct. 7.

It is expected to be operational in 2022.
