Zoning Committee Hearing on Thursday June 18th 9AM
Honolulu Hale: Committee Meeting Room
Ikaika Anderson is proposing approximately 1375 B&B Hotel Rooms in Kailua and an unspecified number of stand-alone vacation rentals in “residential zoning”. Tourism sprawl is destroying Kailua’s residential character; adding traffic and congestion to our roads, parks and beaches. Our community needs residential homes and long-term rentals for residents, not hotel rooms for tourists. A recent State of Hawaii study showed Oahu is facing a 26,000 home shortage between 2015 and 2025 and the conversion of residential homes into vacation rentals has contributed to the problem according to Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism. Please attend the meeting. Written testimony may be faxed to 768-3827 or transmitted via the internet at http://www.honolulu.gov/ccl-testimony-form.html for distribution at the meeting 24 hours in advance. Be sure to state in Headline “OPPOSE Resolutions 15-72 and 15-86”.
