MKRUG Council had expected that the august meeting of the Board of Land and Natural Resources would have two agenda items relating to the former Kulani Prison site. One item was expected to be on the expansion of the Puu Makaala Natural Area Reserve to include most of Kulani and the other relating to the State DOD initiative to operate a Youth Challenge Academy and control the remaining area and road ways including Stainback Highway.
The agenda posted at 10am this morning dose NOT have any item relating to the Kulani site. Hopefully, this means that the State is giving additional thought to their ideas for this public land that is undergoing a major change in use. MKRUG’s main position is that the public has a right to reasonably unimpeded access to and through this area.
