   Discussion: Update on plans for a boat storage yard adjacent to Mariner's Cove
Jo Ann Kocher · 11 years, 11 months ago

The Hawaii Kai Neighborhood Board (HKNB) has received a copy of the variance request filed by the Hawaii Kai Marina Community Association (HKMCA) relative to their plans to convert land adjacent to Mariner’s Cove to a storage yard for boat trailers. This was expected as the HKMCA stated they planned to file this variance request at the meeting on July 6, 2010 at the Mariner’s Cove clubhouse.  Please view the previous forum posting for details of that meeting and comments posted by Cove residents.

Following is the link to the letter from the Department of Planning and Permitting, City and County of Honolulu, to the Neighborhood Board advising them of the request for the variance:

The actual variance request can be viewed at:

Please note that the variance request is 52 pages and a 5 MB file. It can be opened without being saved to your computer.

It has also been learned that the public hearing for this variance request is tentatively scheduled for September 23, 2010 at 1:30 p.m. It is believed it will be at Honolulu Hale.  Interested parties will be advised of the exact location via this forum when it becomes available.

Since many people may be working at the time of the hearing and unable to attend, you may provide your comments via letter or e-mail to:

David Tanoue, Director
Department of Planning and Permitting
650 S. King Street, 7th Floor
Honolulu, HI 96813
(808) 768-8000 

Please include file number 2010/VAR-25 and specifically mention the variance request is for the Hawaii Kai Marina Community Association.              

Please e-mail a copy of your comments to Gary Weller at so he can make sure your letter is included in the material provided to the Department of Planning and permitting.  Mr. Weller is the HKNB representative for this area. Although the HKNB did not take a position on this issue (time will not allow for it be an agenda item), Mr. Weller is facilitating questions and information since the proposed boat trailer storage yard is in his area. He encourages you to submit any questions, concerns or opinions about the variance request to him, as well as writing or e-mailing Mr. Tanoue.
