Councilmember Pine recently met with Ed Lauer, General Manager of the Sea Country Community Association. Ed requested a meeting to discuss ways to improve pedestrian safety and to also address street parking concerns from the community.
UPDATE: After meeting with Ed Lauer, Councilmember Pine sent in a Request for Investigation and Services Report to the Department of Transportation Services, in which they quickly responded. According to Director Michael D. Formby, the department will be conducting an investigation of the streets discussed, which will include research, site inspections, field assessments, traffic history and data analysis. The department will update Councilmember Pine’s office of their findings within the next 60 days.
Some of the ideas that Ed Lauer shared with Councilmember Pine include the following:
- Mokila Street—Request to make one side of the street “no parking.”
- Pakeke Street—Request to make it available for parking on both sides of the street.
- Anaha Street—Request to make it “no parking” along Makai side of the street.
- Intersection of Kaukama Road and Pakeke Street—Request a 3-way stop and a crosswalk due to the large number of pedestrians who use this intersection on a daily basis.
- Intersection of Pakeke Street and Huamoa Street—Request a 3-way stop and a crosswalk since this area is a main bus stop for school children.
