Rep. Pouha asks AG about “Lessons Learned” from Turtle Bay

Representative Feki Pouha thanks Attorney General Doug Chin and asks about “lessons learned” from the Turtle Bay Resort Conservation Easement Agreement during budget briefings in the joint Ways and Means and Finance committee hearing on January 5, 2016.

The Turtle Bay Resort Conservation Easement Agreement provides perpetual public access to four miles of coastline and eight miles of trails that Turtle Bay Resort is solely responsible for in terms of maintenance, security and liability. It resolved long-time development disputes involving the State, City, and community, and protects in perpetuity 4% of Oahu’s coastline.
