The meeting will be from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
The purpose of the meeting is to give the people of Kauai and Niihau, the Hawaiian organizations and the general public a status report on the Aha Moku system for Kauai and Niihau; to get acceptance for this grassroots community consultation process; to identify moku issues and concerns; and to finalize the process on the moku structure. The results of this meeting will be part of the Final Legislative Report on the Aha Moku Systems that will be submitted to the Hawaii State Legislature in December 2008.
Please let as many people as possible know about this meeting. All of Kauai’s legislators, County Council, Planning Depts., and Hawaiian organizations have received notices of this meeting so we have to have our Hawaiians and locals there too.
