TMT sublease appealed
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.
