The idea of treating each other and our surroundings in a way that promotes individual safety and keeps our communities clean is the best thing for everyone.
Fixing up a house while living in it (and not waiting to do major improvements just before it goes up for sell ) means that people can enjoy a better home environment. As well, regular maintenance and improvement keeps home value at its peak.
The same thing holds true for all areas of living on the windward side.
Stamping out graffiti and stopping the illegal dumping of garbage (along with quick remediation and not allowing it to fester in our communities) says we care about our neighbors and our neighborhood.
When it gets into the bigger picture of our windward parks along with beach and natural area access this means proper parking and restrooms and a long term approach to protecting the windward sides natural beauty by being careful stewards.
What this means is we enjoy the fruits of our effort while we have also created greater value.
Overall prosperity always follows when people continue to nurture and care for their communities.
- Make incorporated municipalities possible.
- Allow prefabricated modular housing as the only affordable way to quickly end homelessness on the windward side.
- Research tropical agricultural practices in other countries with the intent of copying their successful methods.
- Set aside regional park-lands and make long term design plans (Maunawili Valley, Kawainui Marsh, Upper Haiku Valley) based on access and preservation
- Seek out private contributions for a Kaneohe Bay Park and a place for restrooms along Lanikai Beach.
- Place planning over regulation as a means of designing a preferred rural and urban environment for Windward Oahu. Create long term design plans based on Windward input and support.
