Lualualei Industrial Park.

Looking  more like Paradise if we can live and work here.

Tropic Land LLC proposes to develop an industrial park that would occupy approximately 96 acres on the east side of Lualualei Naval Access Road. The industrial park would consist of approximately 35 lots, averaging two acres each. The project would have a single secured entry off of Lualualei Naval Access Road and a secondary access for fire and emergency purposes.

"There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, that it hardly becomes any of us, to talk about the rest of us.
 
The existing linear tree farm will remain as a 30-foot landscaped setback along the Lualualei Road frontage. The north and south property lines have 15-foot setbacks. An additional strip of land, approximately 100 feet wide and mauka of the industrial lots, will be used for drainage improvements and rockfall hazard mitigation.”

 
Beautiful Industrial Park built on the Mainland by people with the smarts to do good for their fellow residents.

The project will be structured under a condominium form of ownership with individual lots and common ownership of internal roads and infrastructure. Tropic Land LLC is planning to seek an I-1 zone for the area that is planned for industrial use. The remainder will remain in the preservation zone.

The amendment will provide an inventory of industrial space on the Waianae Coast, which does not have a similar facility. The proposed project will be attractive to a mix of light industrial businesses and provide open yard space for storing materials, trucks, and heavy equipment.


The proposed light industrial park and baseyard is a job-producing and economy sustaining land use. The industrial park has the potential to become an employment center offering well-paid jobs that are within convenient commuting distance of Waianae Coast communities. Minimum wage is worth ten times more on this coast than in Honolulu. "And I coulda been home in 20 minutes." None of this Rail Station Humbug.

"And it's my opinion, and that's only my opinion, the Present Rail Party are lunatics. Just because there are a few hundred other people sharing  their lunacy with them does not make them any saner.
 
The anticipated opening is approximately 18 months from receipt of government approvals. The preliminary cost of the light industrial park, based on the conceptual site plan, is estimated at $29 million. A drop in the bucket compare to the new estimated costs of the Rail Disaster. Ten billion dollars, but somebody is gonna make Big Bucks theah.

SOS

The Waianae Coast has been taken for all it has for too long. They are tired of it and want no more of it. They would like to live their lives as peaceful as they can without too much interference from the outside. They know what they want and they know that their representatives are not likely to give it to them.

"Whoever gossips to you will gossip about you - Do not repeat anything you will not sign your name to."
 
Line Dancing
So I have tried to introduce our kind of blog and few have understood it. Naturally not, but there is nothing in here to take from them, only to give  to them. That is not very readily understood and these people may be ignorant but they are far from being stupid. The can learn as easily as anyone else.

"I Remember You" by Don Ho

And that is where we can use this blog for its maximum efficiency. But it must be for the good of all. And Talk is Cheap. We must do, slowly and see if we are being helped or being taken. With this blog, some people will be able communicate their opinions for the readers. That is most crucial. Because the blog must get the feedback from the readers for what they want. It is not dictated to from the top the way it has been done for years.


The Articulated Bus in the C bus, the #40 and the #93, would have
been the perfect answer in public transportation for the Waianae
Coast. They won't listen. Yes, we all know.  The Big Bucks in
Profits from the Rail Disaster.

I will be patient and slowly let some of the readers of this blog take it over, I will resign, and they will take over and make their own rules. But for sure it will be closer to the will of the people. Be patient.

New Start

Changing into a lot more dance formation is looking good. The kind of interest I have been looking for. Apparently there is quite a bit of dancing but in very small groups and nothing steady. I am still looking for ways to help people. There is lots to do


I can dream, can't I?

Then there is the good news of a small industrial park in Lualualei. It would convert this area in a real Paradise. Local small businesses and light industrial operations are an important source of jobs for Waianae’s people. A healthy level of small local businesses is essential for the local economy and also lessens the volume of commuter traffic that causes severe congestion on Farrington Highway during morning peak and afternoon traffic periods. "And I coulda been home in 20 minutes." None of that Rail Humbug.

There is the usual Hawaiian and Samoan Dancing, but I have heard of other such as line dancing. Let us know and we can write them up. Free Public Relations.

But It Couldn't Happen Again.

Officials are taking a hard look at safety issues surrounding the growing transportation of crude oil by rail following this week's fiery train derailment in eastern North Dakota. A 106-car BNSF freight train carrying crude oil from the state's Bakken oil field went off the tracks Monday in a spectacular and devastating accident.


The accident caused violent toxic explosions and a hazardous plume of smoke in the region, although no injuries were reported. The derailment was the fourth major accident of 2013 involving a freight train transporting oil.

Forty-seven people were killed in July when a crude oil train derailed and exploded in a town in Canada's Quebec Province, just across the border from Maine.

Another derailment occurred in October in Alberta, Canada, and yet another a month later, when a train carrying about 2.7 million gallons of crude oil exploded and burned in Alabama.


Despite the string of accidents, America's railroads boast an impressive record when it comes to transporting hazardous freight, and especially oil.

Fortunately we have a guarantee from the Present Rail Party that it could not happen here. And we know how truthful they are. It could fall on a lot of people.

Waianae Trip

Monday morning I had a nice breakfast, showered and ready before noon. Had to stop by Kokua Mau and people there are doing their job very nicely, helping the community. Yvonne, and two volunteers, Roy and Kim.


Just in time to get the 40 bus going to Waianae and got off at the Waianae Transit Center. Took my nice leisurely walk dropping my fliers in the right places. Many empty spaces since they raised the rents to pay for the Rail Disaster. Found Kokua Villa. A nice classy place looking more uppity than Nanakuli. Very impressive people there.


I tried to explain but I think I did not do a good job of it. It happens, I am not a very good explainer. I left and thought I may as well go to Makaha and the Thrift Shop. The people there were very nice and seem to understand. I will have to be patient and see how I can help them. Meanwhile we look for others so we can all know and help each other on the Waianae Coast.

We need the Industrial Park and a much better Bus service. The local buses are terrific, it's the big shots, like the C and the 40. Need to make it more pleasant to take public transportation than the car. They are a far cry from it now. The entire world is looking for the solution and for sure, we ain't got it.

Bad News

Most of the time we have good news and that is always a pleasure. Now it is looking bad which means it is going to get worse. Nanakuli.

"Every person is a volume if you know how to read them."

The big acreage in back of the Sack N Save has never been used for farming two thousand years. But now it has become camping grounds for some of the homeless. They have never bother much and sometime bunch around some spot but they move on to another.

Now we have an added group in the vicinity of the Auto Repair, that are dealing in things that may be illegal. The neighbors are becoming suspicious. And apparently, nothing is going to be done until they overflow and encroach on Kaiser Permanente. Most of us are waiting to see and are very cautious. No coming home late in the evening.


The rest of Waianae seem to be doing just fine. Haven't heard more on the development in Maili but I am hoping for more good news. What about this Night Club?


Just a rumor that they were going build this site next to the Makaha Shopping Center. and if the city could fix the road around Kaena Point, there would be exchange of people and commerce with Mokuleia on the North Shore. Yes, we know the Present Rail Party put a stop to that nonsense.

"The ABC's Of Love" by Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers

Girl field mouse got all ready to meet her boyfriend across the field at 5pm. As she went across the field she got caught in the Farmer's Reaper. But she was able to wobbled over to where her boyfriend was waiting and he took one look at her ragged state and asked, "What happened honey?" She replied, "I've been reaped."

2014 Moving

The year is starting out pretty good for most of us on the Waianae Coast. And I will keep working from Makaha down to Nanakuli.  There must be quite a few people on these islands that can imagine a world where everyone has the power to share knowledge and use the internet and blogging for innovation.

"Life is a wonderful gift but it is also challenging and sometimes
heart-wrenching. We can all use a little motivation and inspiration
from time to time to help us navigate the small and large hurdles
we encounter on our journey."

I have already added Tacos And More in Waianae to the Pages section on this blog. Gradually the reader/dancers will know how that works. And I will try to get a new one in now and then with the help of the readers. And I must go and see the thrift shop next week, perhaps I can help.


I have outlined the plan with ten blogs to make the internet more accessible and efficient so that anyone of us can communicate with our fellow dancers on the Hawaiian Islands and beyond. Other blogs have their own excellent methods and we should have no objection to that. But ten of our blogs is over diluting our readership and at least one will be deleted at the end of this month.

"Glad All Over" by the Dave Clark Five

Our plan is to make basic internet communication affordable, (at no cost,) so that everyone with a computer can join the knowledge economy. The key remains the Two - Centers willing to stick their two cents of information and photos to share with their fellow dancers. Then we will make this truly Social Media.
