Nov. News Article

Aloha All,

I wanted to start by letting you know that the video conferencing system is up and
running in the Pāhoa Council Office so you can now provide testimony or watch as
important decisions are discussed and made by your County Council, right here in Pāhoa!

I hope you made it to the Redistricting meeting on October 11, at the Pāhoa Community
Center and shared your input with Commissioners. They have volunteered to do an
important job for us and they don’t have much time, so please come to the public
meetings and share your comments with them.

Please help me welcome Edward Jones to the neighborhood. Father Joey from the
Sacred Hearts Church was on hand to perform an office blessing and refreshments were
provided. I think it’s a good sign our economy might be recovering if we can sustain an
Edward Jones Investment Banker office in Pāhoa! So welcome and may you prosper.

Also please help me welcome the newest permanent residents of the Pāhoa landscape,
the beautiful sculpture of two whales at the Vacation Rentals across from the Pāhoa
Bay Clinic. Aloha and welcome.

There were 2 street lights installed in Pāhoa Town and 3 in Hawaiian Beaches that will
help improve night visibility and increase safety in these areas. The water spigots in
Nānāwale are open to the public now providing a clean, safe area for household drinking

The transfer station re-use area should be opening next month. The Department of
Environmental Management is working to implement procedures for accepting re-use
items and making them available to the public in a safe, clean and organized manner.

Paving on Pāhoa Village Road is nearly complete then the road crew will move on to
Kahakai Blvd. and finally to Wa’a Wa’a. Did anyone else notice how much wider the
road through Pāhoa is since they scraped the sides? Road crews will also be addressing
long standing flooding issues on the road so we should see major improvements when it

On November 19 there will be two functions I want to tell you all about. First from
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. the Maku’u Farmers Market Association, KOA Puna Bike Riders
and the Pāhoa Village Club will be hosting a Toys for Tots Giveaway at the Maku’u
Farmers Market. The second is the Annual Homeless Awareness Event at the Pāhoa
Community Center, also from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on November 19, a free
Thanksgiving lunch will be served at 11:00 a.m. and everyone is encouraged to attend. I
can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving already!

Have a Happy Safe Halloween.
