Ke Ala Pupukea Bike Path Meeting on July 29th

23 07 2014

Ke Ala Pupukea Bike PathAloha,

My name is Vance Farrant and I was fortunate to be raised on the beautiful North Shore. I am in the Class of 2017 at Kamehameha Schools Kapalama. This summer I had the opportunity to intern in the office of Council Chair Ernie Martin and have developed a community project as a part of my internship. As a lifelong resident of the North Shore I am excited to work with community groups and individuals to make a positive impact on our community.

My chosen project is to work with the community to restore and improve the Ke Ala Pupukea Bike Path, a treasure in our beloved North Shore that runs from Three Tables to Oopuola Street. Visitors and locals alike use this path daily. The Ke Ala Pupukea Bike Path is now almost 20 years old and is in need of maintenance. That is why I am developing a plan for revitalization of the bike path and would greatly appreciate input and support from community members like YOU!

I have met with community members who have concerns about the current condition of the bike path and have recently traveled the length of the path to identify areas of concern myself. If you have concerns about specific areas of the Ke Ala Pupukea Bike Path please email your concerns to malamakealapupukeabikepath@gmail.com. Please include the location and a description of your concern in the email. I will be compiling these concerns and present them in one organized document to Chris Sayers, the Bicycle Coordinator for the City and County of Honolulu.

There will be an informational meeting about the Ke Ala Pupukea Bike Path Revitalization Plan on Tuesday, July 29th from 6:00 – 7:30 PM at the Sunset Beach Recreation Center. This meeting provides an opportunity for members of the community and community groups to come together to discuss how we can work together to improve the condition of the bike path. Please take the time to attend the meeting for more specific information on the plan which includes opportunities for community members and groups to adopt sections of the bike path to assist in the restoration and maintenance of the path. Please invite your friends and neighbors to attend as we all work together to care for Ke Ala Pupukea Bike Path.

Please join me in my quest to do more than just restore the Ke Ala Pupukea Bike Path. Let’s work together to make it better than it ever was before!
