No public input for Kauhola land
Maikai Kamakani O Kohala will not be seeking public input on the future uses of Kauhola Point, as was reported in a Saturday article.
“There will be no public input as specific resource management plans are in place through a stewardship planning process of the current active users of the area,” organization founder and President Stephanie Naihe Laxton said. “This land is being held/titled as “fee simple” private property by a community-based nonprofit organization, it is not public lands.”
The article also omitted a portion of another organization’s name, the Maikai Kamakani O Kohala Ocean Warrior’s program. Maikai Kamakani O Kohala Ocean Warriors Program’s Elizabeth Pickett provided the aerial photographs of the property.
