A constituent reached out to Councilmember Pine’s office regarding a growing homeless encampment at Tracks Beach close to the Electric Beach side. Individuals were leaving trash, urinating in the area, creating disturbances, and were becoming a safety issue.
Councilmember Pine submitted a Request for Investigation and Services Report to the City to get assistance for the area. HPD connected with the Office of Housing to clean up this area and provide the squatters with aid and support services.
Kealahou West Oahu and Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center assessed the housing and health needs of individuals and families in this area and offered access to shelter services, as well as other resources. The constituent recently called Councilmember Pine’s office to update that the area was cleared.
Councilmember Pine is continuing to work with the appropriate departments to ensure that our Waianae coast will continue to be a safer place for our families and keiki.
